As an individual and as an instructor. she was ever ready to proiier the hand of aid and the voice of sympathy io all who needed it. A 9 The' :White Rose Mary E. Potts DEEP in the valley, closely guarded by higli IS' gg mountains, lay the little village ot B-, the prettiest and quaintest in the country for miles around.. At least, so declared the tourists who, on their way to the fashionable watering towne farther north, deserted the beaten track traced by wealth and luxury, and stopped tor a cort- kqg ff'-5?"f'x X tortahle night at its untreqtzentcd doors. They loved its tiny white cottages with thc green .roots and shutters carrying out to perfection the cool color scheme of the neat front lawns Jji2iTii -' with their immaculate white fences, they loved - A "-'tw the sparkle of the clear waters of the wayward stream, which, fed by a cold, blue mountain glacier, swished and foamed not a hundred yards tronr the very gardens in which grew the greatest attraction of all-the multitude ot roses. Not a cottage, but was surrounded by them, not a garden but fairly burst with its burden of velvet petals. From the trailest bud to the most pertect full-blown rose, they ranged--in color from the pink of it delicate coral to the glory of a royal crimson. The tourists marveled at the beauty of it all and listened attentively to the tale told of the eccentric old mayor, who oticred yearly a prize for the rose most perfect in every detail. They heard vague rumors of the old manis young nephew, a lad of some ten or twelve summers, who had lately come to live in the great gray house on the mountain side, and who was this year to choose the winning rose and pre- sent the prize. The old men ot the village shook their heads dubiously when they repeated the tale. lt did not seem right that so much responsibility should be placed on such young shoulders, and they wondered that the mayor should have it thus. But it was not for them to murmur, and if the mayor considered the boy equal to the task, well and good. ln the garden ot the grim silent house on the hill, on the evening before that day ot days for the simple peasants of B-, the mayor and his nephew were talking. The sky was dark and ominous, with heavy clouds gathering closely around the rugged peaks of the mountains, covering their jagged tops lege-53' ,rears aE',r . is ,AJ -ff'-' gi' " ., . , .,' -2.15, H., , , 4. .:l -wt.. v ,-,, , . , if ri' 1 's ---'1.l4'. -'-111. .6- fx- s "L".'.7' 5' 'r . -'- in ..

The man spoke tirst: "We will be having a storm soon, my boy," he said, and his voice, deep and low, yet with a certain harshness, was like the thunder which even then rumbled threateningly overhead. The boy nodded. l-le was a frail little chap with great brown eyes in -vhose sott depths there now lingered an expression of timidity that was almost fear. . 10 . HY 7 '..Hl es sn. ie said quietly, but there was no animation in his voice, and his thoughts were far away, dwelling on the dreaded duty which to-morrow he must perform. In the old man's mind there were no such thoughts. For him the morrow would be a day of happiness, of joy-the day on which he would rind of what stuti' this small young nephew beside him was made, and in his heart he be- lieved implicitly that the boy would stand the test. "He shall love flowers as I have loved them,t' he murmured, "so that when I ani no longer here to see them tlonrish in the village, he may take my place. lt is well for him to begin young." The tirst large drops were falling now, a warning of the torrents that were to follow, and the man and boy, hand in hand, silently entered the house. All that evening the boy was ill at ease. Fear gnawed at his heart, a fear which increased with every tick of the solemn faced clock on the mantel, slowly marking otl' the minutes through which his uncle so peacefully slept. It was a dread of the people before whom to-morrow he must speak-those rough, uncouth villagers whose red, coarse features frightened him, and whose manner, so different from that of the people he had lived among heretofore, he could not understand. With every tormentiug tick of the old clock his fear grew upon him. To stand before the il all, to have them laugh at his way of speaking and mock at what he said-Hlie would not do it. His uncle did not know what he demanded when he bade him do it. He would tell him that it could not be done, that he was afraid. Bipt then the boy drew in his breath sharply. Admit that he was a coward? No, that was even worse, and he dismissed the thought of confessing as one not worthy to be considered a moment. Nevertheless he was but a boy, not without boyish traits, in spite of his old way of thinking, and he did what many another boy would have done under the circuinstances.-That is, he ran away. Not so very far away, however- althougli his intentions were good-for the storm was raging now in all its fury, and the wind blew down the mountain with such force as nearly to lift him oti' his feet. The cool drops of rain, dashing against his face, were strange-- ly refreshing and invigorating. He realized how warm and close it had been in the great house he had left, and then at the thought of his uncle he struggled on down the path with redoubled vigor. But the odds were against him, and a stormy path, along which he had to feel his way in the darkness, the wind, and rain, were too much for a small boy to conquer, and although he fought bravely, for he was not naturally a coward, he slipped on a loose stone at the very bottom of the mountain, lunged forward in the darkness, and rolled, a wet moaning bundle, to the very door of one of the village cottages. Had the boy been able to see, he would have noticed that it was a very humble little cottage, so frail and forlorn looking that it might have been no task at all for the wind to carry it away. lt must have been a determined little cottage, however, for it stood its ground, and although the wind, angry now, 11 made its attack doubly violent, the little cottage kept hrm hold on Mother Earth. Inside a light burned dimly, casting its feeble rays into all corners of the room, in the middle of which a woman sat knitting. She was old and haggard, and the shadow of the peasant's cap on her face tended only to add to its sallow, drawn expression. She was known in the village as "Old Nancy," and the more fortunate dames were always willing to say a good word for her. Alone in the world, friendless, poverty-stricken, living quietly in the little cottage she called her home, Old Nancy was indeed deserving of the sympathy of her neighbors. Often, when the little store of food had run low, and there seemed noth- ing between her and starvation, Old Nancy would comfort and console herself by tending, with all the more tender care, the little rosebush which grew by the cottage. It was such a poor little bush that the villagers were prone to laugh at it and to wonder how Old Nancy could build her hopes on the foundation of its tiny buds. But Nancy herself cared not a wink for the gossips, she loved and cherished her rosebush with a fervor increased a hundred fold whenever the object of her affection was malignantly spoken of. It bore each year a single rose, and with the flower, budded, bloomed, and faded, each year, poor Nancy's hopes. If the gold the mayor so freely offered were hers, there would be no more trouble and sorrow in the humble cottage. The last of her days could be spent in comfort, and the wolf of hunger forever driven from the door. Yet thrice the rosebush had failed her. Thrice when she thought the gold was almost hers, was its beauty marred and the treasure tlown. She sat to-night thinking it all over. Out in the darkness bloomed the most perfect rose, of purest white, that the bush had ever borne, and her heart was hlled with hopes that to-morrow on that great day it might stand forth as best. For an instant the fury of the wind abated, and Nancy realized with a start that a sound very like a moan had reached her ears from without. In an instant she had lifted in her strong old arms the wet sobbing Hgure of a boy whose head was cut and bleeding and who mumbled incoherently. She saw at a glance that the wound was not a deep one, yet she realized that the boy must be kept as quiet as possible. When he cried time and time again for a rose, 'fjust one rose," her heart sank with the heaviness of despair. lt was her duty, she saw it plainly. The boy should not have his slightest wish thwarted in the condition in which he lay, and yet--the rose meant so much to her and it was all she had. Several hours later, strong arms carried the boy up the mountain in the first faint light of approaching dawn. He rested quietly, all danger was over and in one warm hand he held the white rose. Old Nancy left him at the gate of his uncle's home, the boy was safe, but her rose was gone. The great day dawned gloriously clear, with the sun shining brightly, as if doing his best to atone for the havoc of the night's storm. The boy stood, looking down on the happy peasants from a low balcony of the great house, 12 ,L I his uncle by his side and all fear forgotten. Everywhere were the roses, and everywhere the shining morning faces of the people. He stepped forward to speak to thern and instantly there came a great stillness. The old mayor watched him furiively, and his cold gray eyes sparkled with delight. The boy was speaking well. The silence grew tense, for the moment of announcing the winning rose had come. Slowly the boy put his hand into his coat, and slowly he drew forth the faded dropping mass of softest petals which had won the gold. It was the while rose. . - My Ideal Far oil in the dim, cold distance, Is 21 vision fair to see, Daily, hourly, it comes nearer, Nearer to the earth and me. It is clothed in rainbow colors, Piercing through the darkest night, And to me it is my ideal, Calling me to do the right. At the close of a day auspicious it shines out most radiantlyg When the day is long and irksome, lt is waiting patiently. HELEN R. BALTHASER. 13 Third Year Course in Domestic Science Care of Infants Longfellow, Wfhe., Sweetest of All Singers" Alumni Prize Essay By Edith S. Brunner VER and over again we read, quote, and derive comfort from the foreign bards, but never with envy in our hearts, for although America has not as yet become a pillar to the throne of Art, not so many years have passed since, in this lzingdom between the seas, all the world heard the voice of one singing. ln an age of mighty shoutings, new inventions, and great confusion, he trerit. quietly amid the tumull, and had he been asked the reason why, he might tai. e answered, "l am only shepherding my sheep with music." So he went quietly along' his chosen way which led sometimes to the door of the village smithy, sometimes to the pine-scented ship-yard, sometimes down the marble stairs into old gardens, HlLlll'O cities and thro solitudes," by "towers of old cathedrals tall, and castles by the Rhine," but always among the ways and haunts of men, and always , "Along that narrow-way Which leads no traveler's foot astray, From realms of love." , , From the wedding feast in an Indian lodge, he came to the tide-beaten coast ot Acadia and from a walk through tall dark trees, and by running brooks, where his thoughts flow ed along with the murmuring water, he always returned in time for "The Childrenls Hour." ,ln his own heart the wavering pines and willows kept up a perpetual melody, and he could not choose, but sing back to them. As we suddenly stop in Spring to catch the song of the first robin, so men. women and children stopped under the charm of this strange lovely music. There was the youth, just setting out on lite's journey, and the old man whose days were well nigh spentg the toiler sweating beneath his load, and the idler who took new courage, the "lonely sailor on t'ar-oli' seas," and the gray-minded scholar, whose candle burnt into the small hours of the nightg the happy mother, Crooning a lullaby, and the children for whom the charmer made old songs young with his singing. lrresistihly they were drawn, and as they,came, their faces became wonderfully lightened, while the tigzagged paths of their lives grew more straight, for A t'God sent his Singers upon earth That they might touch the hearts of men With songs of gladness and ot mirth And bring them hack to Heaven again." 1 7, They were noise-weary ofthe clashing cymbals and big drums, and nothing could seem better worth the hearing than the "melodies'which brought sweet order into life's confusion." Then, too, this songster understood their every- day cares, cares which "wear the heart and waste the body," and he bade them "Fear not in a world like this And thou shalt know ere long, Know how sublime a thing it is To suffer and be strong." It was not the wish of his heart to spur them on to deeds of valor, or to be their leader on a long quest in search of another Holy Grail. Rather than show them the "sun-rise joy of Heaven," he would have them see the "sun set peace of earth." And so the shepherd sang his way along, while those who loved him best, followed in his train, treasuring in their hearts a faith and love best expressed by some of his own words: "The words that dropped from his sweet tongue, "As pleasant song, at morning sung, Strengthened our hearts, or heard at night Made all our slumbers soft and light." And then the flaming arrow of death came upon his only earthly treas- ures, and the father, in this case, was called upon to give "in tears and pain the flowers he most did love." And not only were the children of his life taken, but far down in the "valley of shadowl' they heard his voice telling: i'And with them the being beauteous Who unto my youth was given More than all things else to love me And is now a saint in heaven." ' For a long time the music was silent as the shepherd tarries and wrestles in this "mystical temple of sorrow" but one bright day he came again to his flock, and he was singing: ' "Oh, though oft depressed and weary All my cares are laid aside, If l but remember only, Such as these have lived and died." Although the memory of this subdued sorrow was always present, he never allowed it to become repining. He might have sung "My life is cold, anddark, and dreary, lt rains and the wind is never Weary," but his symphonies never ended with a throb, and in self-reproof, and encour- agement to his comrades he finished- "Be still, sad heart, and cease repining, Behind the clouds is the sun, still shining. 16 Thy fate is the common fate of all, Into each life some rain must fall, Some days must be dark and dreary." d the reached a mountain beyond And so they journeyed on until one ay y which the shepherd must go alone. Following the trails he had beaten for ' ' ' ' ' -f -df orld, while he-went singing down them, his tlock returned to the work '1 ay w the other side. That little company has long since vanished while, "Daily the tides of life go ebbing and flowing beside themg Thousands of throbbing hearts, where theirs are at rest foreverg Thousands of tolling hands, where theirs have ceased their labors, Thousands of weary feet, ' ' " But still, if you pause to listen, there is the voice of one singing. The man who is best serving his generation by promoting peace, above where theirs have completed their Journey: the din of battle, hears his voice 1- "Stronger than steel ls the sword of the Spirit! Swifter than arrows The light of the truth is! Greater than anger Is love and subdueth l" To the youth just buckling on life's armor he sings: "Write on your doors the sayings wise and old, Be bold! be bold! and everywhere-be bold. Be not too bold! yet better the excess Than the defect, better the more than less. Beter like Hector in the field to die 'Than like a perfumed Paris, turn and fly." And to the old man nearing the last mile stone: - "Let him not boast who puts his armor on As he who puts it off, the battle done." Those whose lives are only a tale of feverish bargaining he bids come away from "The market place, the eager love of gain Whose aim is vanity, and whose end is pam." To those who are dreamers of dreams he sings :- "O sweet illusion of the brain! O sudden thrills of fire and frost! The world is bright while ye remain And dark and drear when ye are lost." And not only to separate hearts does he sing, for when tasks are done and ' 1 cares forgotten, the home circle hears his p ea: - 17 "I hope, as no unwelcome guest, At your warm tire-place, when lamps arc lighted, To have my place reserved among th e rest, Nor stand as one unsought and uninvitedf' Even the little children he hids:- , "Come to me, 0 ye children, And whisper in my ear What the birds and winds are singing ln your sunny atmosphere." And for all who listen, V "The night shall be Hlled with music, And the cares that infest the day Shall 'told 'their tents like the Arabs And as silently steal away." Surely the man who asked God to 'fsend us 1 send us men to match our plains," was wishing to fectly fullilled the commandment given us to " heart to the Lord."

Scholl ' NE summer evening when the moon shone brightly on the land- scape, and the voice of nature seemed to call me to the woods, I silently slipped away from the noisy crowd in the log cabin and followed the winding path among the trees. They swayed back and forth in the gentle breeze, and seemed to whisper secrets as I passed. Asoothing quiet came over me as I sat down upon a mossy bank, leaned my head against a tree, and gazed dreamily upon the open wood before me. A While I sat dreaming here, I heard sweet strains of music,-tender, soft. and light,-such as were never heard before on this world of ours. I looked through the trees in the direction of the sound, and saw some fairies robed in flowing gossamer gowns of rainbow tints. Some were ringing the bluebell chimes, while others danced merrily around their queen Titania, who was holding her little baby girl in her arms. This little girl was as light as a feather, and so small, fluffy, and round that they called her Featherball. When the fairies stopped dancing, Titania threw Featherball, Hrst to one of her subjects, then to another, and there was great jollity and merriment in the circle, for Featherball bounced from one to another just like a big soap bubble. Titania's heart was lilled with pride, for her little daughter was the center of attraction and won the hearts of all. While she kissed her little one on the cheek and was bouncing her into the air once more, twelve wicked, little elves, each carrying a bag of wind on his back, stealthily crept near, and when a dark cloud covered the moon, immediately opened their bags. The wind rushed out with a mighty sweep and carried little Featherball out of sight. Titania was panic stricken, and raising her wand, changed all her little subjects into fireflies and bade them search far and wide or their little princess. Indeed, today, the Hrellies can be seen carrying their little lanterns through Held and meadow, for- est and woodland, in search of their little treasure. 23 The Pansy The pansy in whose velvet soul A crystal dew-drop lies, Must show its treasure to the world When M01I1iHg says, "Arise!"

Achenbach O white man had yet set foot upon the virgin wilderness of great Americag the Red Man was the undisputed master of all he sur- veyed. Niagara, truly the 'Thunderer of Watersf' rolled on in its mighty source quite free from the inventive power of human- kind, while the moon in all her majesty passed directly overhead, casting a sheen of silver over all the earth which gave an effect heightened only by the soft hues of the rainbows spanned across the foaming waters as they sent back the glistening spray, only to redouble its traces. Far above, at the brink of the terrible precipice, stood an Indian youth- Pi-ji-cu-tah, by name. The deafening roar of the water bore to him no terror, it was as music to his ears, for in it he could distinguish the gentle laughter, ay the very rhythm in the breathing of her who ever haunted his dreams-the elusive Maid of the Mist. Strong was he and brave--this youngest son of the aged chief of the On- tarios, and lithe as a slender sapling--in short, the idol of the tribe, that which they worshipped and about which revolved their little world. His people had, however, one fearsome annoyance: why did he not seek for his wife, the daugh- ter of the neighboring chief, when marriage with her would mean happiness for himself and peace for his people? And then, too, there was a secret fear which each nourished only within his own heart: why did he persist in descending, once every harvest moon, that gigantic cataract in his frail canoe-an adven- ture so fraught with danger? The time of bounty was again at hand, and they felt many secret misgivings about the old tribe superstition that the water could- but ill endure a conqueror. . Allowing his fancy to roam at will, Pi-ji-cu-tah had now stood by the side of his canoe while an hour had sped by as quickly as a minute. The moonlight, the fragrance ofthe birch, the magic of the water possessed a subtle charm which he could not overcome. Quickly the agile youth sprang into his canoe and in a single glance, defying the world as it lay before him, he leaped into the stream of molten silver. The chill spray cooled his fevered brow, soft arms rose from the water and sought hisg from the sullen roaring of the stream, he could distinguish gentle whispers as they reached his ears. Hisidream was realized. I-le had joined the Maid of the Mist-the maid of his dreams. There was found the next rnoruing, the dull black feather of an eagle which he had but a few days before brought down with his arrow, from her high eyrie, all that remained to tell the tale. 49 Third Year Course in Domestic Science Care of Infants Benjamin Rush, M. D. Patriot, Physician and Author D. A. R. Prize Essay Mary E. PottS ESS than a hundred and fifty years ago America was but a youthful colony, struggling for her' cherished liberty with a tire and pa- triotism which conquered almost impregnable difficulties, and which gained a victory that has placed her foremost in the world today. It was her great men who accomplished the task for her,-men in whose. hearts the desire for freedom was an all-prevailing force, and whose love of patriotism was second only to their love of God. Such men, noble, strong, broad-minded, breathed an influence into the world which lived long after they themselves had passed out of it, and which reaching us today in the midst ot' this twentieth century confusion causes us to turn admiring eyes back through the years to the lives of those we are so proud to call our forefatlrers. Such men, presenting to the world an example of duties well performed and lives well lived, were the true founders of America,+-and such a man was Benjamin Rush. He was born with the love of fighting in his veins, and the :severest battles of his life were directed against ignorance and vice. l-Iis grandfather, steady upholder of Cromwell and his cause, settled in America after the death of his leader, and here, twelve miles northwest of what is now the great city of Phila- delphia, Benjamin Rush was born, on the twenty-fourth of December, 1745. Into his nrother's hands was placed the task of procuring for her fatherless troy an education which would enable him to be in every sense of the word, a gerrtleman, and as nrore money was needed than was available, the country house was sacriticed by the unselhsh spirit of a rn otherts love, and a position ob- tained in the near-by city. The nine-year-old boy was placed under the care of the Reverend Doctor Findlay, principal of an academy at Nottingham, Mary- land. The kind old professor realized that in his young pupil was the making of a scholar, and as a result of his training Rush entered Princeton College at the age of fourteen. Later, when the boy came to choose his profession, and announced the study of law to be the subject most dear to his heart, the old professor exerted even a more important influence over his life by advising the study of medicine. The advice was followed, and from then on young Rush devoted himself entirely to what was to be, in a great part, his life work. After six years of study under the celebrated Doctor Redman, of Philadel- phia, and two years of travel in Europe, devoted to the lectures in the best med- ical schools of London and Paris, Rush received his title of "Doctor of Medi- cine" and on his return to America started that career which has 'made him famous as one of the greatest physicians of his age. From the start, this career was crowned with success. The quiet unob- trusive manner of the young physician inspired the comidence of the older and 51 more experienced practitioners and before the first year of his professional life, they had called him in to take part in many an important consultation. In 1777 he was appointed by Congress to the ofhce of physician general of the military hospitals for the middle department. His lectures were attended by thousands, and his classes of pupils grew so large he was unable to attend to them alone. Philadelphia held him in great esteem, and well might she do so, for in the summer of 1793 his loyalty suffered a lest, the outcome of which proved the great physician to be the city's true friend, most worthy to be de- pended on in times of trouble and despair. And these were days of darkest gloom for the city of Brotherly Love, days in which men dared not breathe the name of Death even while surrounded by the suffering and sorrow caused by his relentless hand, days in which homes were sacrihced and corpses buried at night, "as in plague stricken London." lt was the yellow fever, raging in all its fury through Philadelphia lanes and highways, which worked the destruction of so large a portion of the city, and which caused, during one month, 17,000 people to flee for their lives. Those who escaped the disease succumbed to the more powerful enemy of selfishness, and, in frenzied attempts to save their own lives, thrust into the streets their sick and dying or fled in terror from the "squalid rooms where Death was busy with his workfl Physicians, now so in demand, that their services were invaluable, proved themselves merely human by fleeing with the terrified people theylacked courage to aid. lt is now, in the midst of this havoc and confusion, that Dr. Benjamin Rush stands forth as a true Christian soldier, hghting valiantly under the banners of charity and self- sacrifice. He and two other physicians, all from the vast number of his pupils and professional friends who heeded his plea that they realize their responsibili- ties to their professions and to the public, were all that remained to care for the suffering thousands. "1 prefer," said Rush, "since I am placed here by Divine Providence to fall in performingmy duty, if such must be the consequence of staying on the ground than to secure my life by fleeing from the post of duty allotter in the Providence of God. l will remain, if I remain alone." For his services Philadelphia must be forever grateful. All his time, as well as that of his family, was devoted to the cause of benevolence, visiting the sick, comfort- ing the dying, and inspiring in the hearts of his patients that true spirit of Christian love which occupied so large a part of his own. Only when a severe attack of the fever kept him confined himself, did he cease caring for his pa- tients and carrying on his errands of mercy. Philadelphia owes him a great debt, for had it not been for his untiring efforts, the death list must have been greatly increased, and the plague, one of the most fatal ever endured by an American city, must have added hundreds to its number of victims. lt is seldom we hnd a man gifted in as many lines as Dr. Rush, and after his value as a physician it is as a writer that he is best known. The two pro- fessions were closely interwoven. Dr. Rush the physician was also Dr. Rush the author, and it was about his work that he wrote most of his books, treating the deepest professional subjects in a manner so entertaining that even for those who know nothing of medicine, his books are most interesting. He was, as a physician, far ahead of his times, and his keen eyes, searching the dim future of 52 medical science, discovered there facts and principles, the knowledge of which placed him far beyond his contemporaries. It was through his writings that he was best able to impart this knowledge and practical experience to others, and through them Rush gained most of his reputation as a physician. Aside from the question of medicine, Dr. Rush's writings cover a range of subjects probably unsurpassed by any other American author. Education, equal sutlrage, corporal punishment, the slave question, then so important a factor in Colonial lite, all are included in his works, and treated with a force showing a thorough understanding and complete mastery of the subjects. At the outbreak of the war in 1775, his writings did much to kindle the fire of patriotism in the hearts of the people, and were most effective in arousing them to action. Later, when peace had been established and the minds of the people were free to turn to the task of domestic improvement, Rush advocated, both through his writings and personal exertions, the cause of free education. So successful were his etlorts and so sincere his atempts at establishing free schools, that he ex- tended tbe work till it included colleges and universities, and Dickinson College honors him today as one of its founders. A A During the reign ot the yellow plague, Rush started a series of letters tc his wife which have been preserved, and. which do more, perhaps, than any other ot his writings, to give us an insight into all that was good and beautiful in the man's character. In the midst of the suh'ering and distress, terrible be- yond description, he was able to write of God's mercy and love, with never a word of his own trials or the sacrifice he had made. I-lis vivid descriptions, in- teresting narrations and valuable information make these letters as highly esteemed today as when they were tirst written, andthey are generally acknowl- edged as the best of Rush's writings although his deeper works as "Medical Inquiries and Observations" and "Diseases of the Mind" rank high from a more scientific point of view. We cannot wonder that Benjamin Rush was a patriot as well as an author and physician. A man of his unseltish spirit, broadmindedness, and Christian character, must have somewhere in the depths of his nature a love for his country, and that love is everywhere prevalent in the life of Benjamin Rush. As a member of the General Congress of 1776, he was a signer of the Declara- tion of Independence, and an untiring upholder of the cause of freedom. Al- though opposed to Franklin in political opinions, as patriots both men were tirm friends of liberty, and recognized in each other those qualities which were "inspired," as Dr. William Pepper says, 'tby no love of notoriety, nor deterred by any dread ot unpopularityf' The noblest and best of what he had, was given freely and gladly to the service of his country, and when he died on the nineteenth of April, 1813, America realized that she had lost a friend, one whose services were "numerous and valuable, and not the less so for being of that humble unobtrusive character which will not necessarily emblazon the name of Benjamin Rush on the pages of history." i t 53 B ab y Baby dear, with eyes so blue, That shine and sparkle like morning' dew, With dark straight locks, And tiny white socks, With pretty little mouth of rose, And the pinkest of pink little toes,- You are only a little mite, I know, But your sturdy character you already show, By your persistent weeping when you wish to tell That you need your dinner or don't feel well.

After the long-looked-for two-thirty gong had sounded, and the young ladies had secretly smoothed their gowns and given a last twitch to their rib- bons, the entertaimnent began. -- The address of welcome was delivered by Miriam Stirl, who endeavored to inspire great ambition in the newcomers. After this edifying speech, the introduction committee tried to establish good cheer and fellowship between the two classes. Then Misses Brunner, Fernau and Zell gave some excellent solos and selections, displaying the wonderful vocal and instrumental talents of '15. The next number on the program was the playing of games in the differ- ent classrooms. This part of the entertainment seemed to prove a success, as shouts of mirth and much giggling were heard issuing from different parts of the building. But the most thrilling moment came when the various classes were sum- moned to the banquet hall Q? J. Indeed, had this feature been omitted, the reception, according to the views of the Freshmen children, would have been an utter failure. The strains of Florence Spang's victrola greatly enlivened the scene of festivities. Fudge, stuiled dates and cookies disappeared with a re- markable rapidity, but these signs of voracious appetites were considered by the hostesses as the Freshmen's means of showing their appreciation. The pink lemonade disappeared with the same rapidity as the other goodies. Judging from the bright eyes and flushed cheeks of our guests, and their many expressions of thanks, we were sutticiently repaid for our efforts. .1 "Long may you prosper in sunshine and rain, Long may your good deeds in all hearts remain. And when there come moments of quiet and rest, Please call 1915 the one and the best." -Amy L. Brobst. 55 H1611 SCHOOL Fon GIRLS Reading, Pennsylvunig pe The Daisy and Her Sister Amy L. Brobst ANY years ago, in a quiet little valley, lived two beautiful maidens. Every one admired 'them and loved them, and none could tell which was the prettier of the two. The one maiden was a blonde, with long golden hair, with eyes blue as the sky, and a complexion like the dawn of a summer's day, while the other was a brunette, and had wavy black locks, large dark eyes, and a com- plexion that made one think of twilight, and the last rays of the setting sun. Now these two maidens were boon companions, and thoughts of jealousy to- ward each other never entered their minds. So you see that all would have been well with them, had not their guardian angels, one day, quarreled. The angel of the light-haired girl declared her charge to be the most beautiful, while the guardian of the dark-haired one made a like assertion about her charge Thus matters stood, and no compromise could be agreed upon. The only thing they could do was to carry their case 'before Judge Zeus. He heard their plaints and pondered how he might settle this controversy. I-le requested them to wait, while he went into his flower- garden. Having secured two packs of seeds, he gave one to each of the angels. l-le told them to sow them during the night, and the pack that pro- duced the most flowers should decide which was the most beautiful. In the night, when all the villagers were asleep, the angels descended and began very carefully to sow their seed. Their task was Hnished by midnight. When the good people of the valley looked out upon their fields the fol- lowing morning, they saw one mass of daisies and Black-eyed Susans. Then the angels asked the people to pick of those they liked best, but every one in that valley picked a bouquet consisting of one-half daisies and the remaining half Blackeyed-Susans. The controversy remained unsettled. So it is today, blondes and brunettes, daisies and Blackeyed-Susans grow side by side-and none can tell which is the lovelier. No more shirking, much more working, After we graduate. Dangers many we'll End lurking As We our fortune make. -Anna L. Miller 57 The Young Musician Catherine L. Nan ' T was tifteen minutes to three o'clock. A tiny miss, with a much berufiled pink frock and very curly hair, shiny slippers, and eight whole years on her shoulders, was sitting at the window of a home on Main Street. "Oh, will she never come!" sighed Mary. "Never, no never," said the pert little sparrows hopping about on the porch outside. "No, she will never come," ticked the grandfather's clock in the corner, with a very queer look on its face as it pointed its hand to three and growled out "Never ne er never." Tears were beginning to appear in Mary's brown eyes when a brisk tap at the door-bell announced tl1e one so long expected and awaited. "Good afternoon, Mary," said Miss Short briskly as she shook hands with just two of her long, cold lingers. "Good afternoon, Miss Short," answered Mary in a wee, small voice. These formalities over, Mary's iirst music lesson -oh yes, my dear reader, it was the music teacher whom we were awaiting- began. ln three quarters of an hour it ended, and Mary was a sadder and wiser girl. Every day she practiced diligently for thirty minutes and after five weeks she could play "Jenny's First Waltz" and 'Sing Robin, Sing." During the next live weeks the birds called louder than ever, Ht-lo, Mary, come out and play!" and the little clock which showed Mary just how long to practice never ticked so slowly. Each minute seemed to last two minutes and at the end of Hfteen of them our young musician was sure she had played for half an hour. She was now taking her first steps 'tad Parnassunf' and had added the "Sack Waltz" to her repertoire. f S a 1 V 1 :le :i: :1: :Za "Ach, mein Kind, mein Kindug it was corpulent Herr Schmidt, Marie's new music, teacher who spoke, tapping her fingers lightly with his pencil.

Limousines and taxicabs lined the curb of the street, and richly dressed, laughing, chattering people poured from them into the building. Groups of gay students from the University of the town, grave professors and their wives entered. 53 "She studied at the Boston Conservatory," said one. "The governor is to bein a box tonight," said another. 'She had four years at Leipzig." A sudden hush. Mademoiselle Lanier entered and bowed, smiling su- perbly! ' "Ah, iss she not wonderful? She wass once my pupil," said a kindly- looking gentleman in the front row. "'I-low lovely her touch is," a tall lady in the balcony remarked. 'tl can well remember when she played the t'Sack Waltz" for me indeed l think much of her fame is due to my efforts in her young days." he sun was just peeping over the hills. The birds were singing merrily in the willow trees beside a babbling brook. A shepherd was leading his flock out to pasture. The Mademoiselle was playing Grieg's "Morning" Tears sprang to the eyes of the audience as the strains of the "Sonata Pathetique" Hlled the room. But the tears were wiped away by the fairy notes of Liszt's "Ricadanza." Moonlight was streaming into the room. Was not that Beethoven him- self seated at the instrument with the blind girl and her brother by his side, playing for them his famous Sonata?. No, it was just Mademoiselle Lanier, just pretty Marie, a little taller than before, just tiny Mary grown up. fl.

I belong to it myself, and although usually so busily engaged otherwise that I cannot attend its meetings, I can assure you that the Christmas play was a great success, for I was on hand when it was presented. The program opened with the singing of several "Weill- nachtsliederf' without which Christmas is not really,Christmas at all. Two remarkably fine selections were then rendered on the piano, and after that the play itself began. The heroines, Eleanor Renninger and Mabel Dreibelbis, took their parts remarkably well, in spite of the fact that they are Juniors and therefore shut forever from the portals of illustrious '15, Then there were snowflakes, round fluffy sparkling little things that hopped around the stage like birds in a cage, and there were angels, fMae Moser and Alma Friesj in shimmering white with shining stars in their hair and truly angelic expressions. Among theglatter may be mentioned, also, small Dorothy Deppen, who suited the part to perfection, and who has ever since been living up to the well-deserved name of "angel," f'Ask Sister 'Olga if this is not truej. Then, of course there was a Santa Claus, a real, live, fat one, 'with a snowy, that is to say, cotton wadding beard, and a heavy bag of toys. It was only by looking at him very closely that we could recognize the cheery old Soul to be really Lottie Kessler. She, that is he, was received with the good saint's usual popularity, and the applause was so deafening that the Year Book reporter had great diillculty in taking her notes-a state of affairs which may account for the thrilling manner in which the above events are recorded. 0 ei A iLiegend S Edith S. Brunner ENEVA QUAY'S mission of mercy was almost accomplished, and after depositing one more pass for the Christmas Festival into the hands of some street urchin, she felt her day should be happily complete. The question was, just where was that one worthy urchin? She had visited all the highways and byways of the old English town, and even now the chill of Christmas weather was as naught, when compared with the vibrations of warmth which filled her whole body at the memory of thin, per- haps chubby ibut always dirtyj fingers, handling with awe the bit of card she had given them, which meant to them a promise of seeing a new land all filled with lights and music and happy children. "Papers, Papers!" rang an anxious little voice from the doorway of the tavern, and "Where, Where? " was the question Geneva Quay's sympathetic heart answered. That voice had in it an infinite something which made you, for the time being, believe that nothing in the world was quite as important as papers. A moment's dodging brought Geneva face to face with the crier and, as she had expected, the little little hgure fin spite of a ponderous comforterj proved that the wretchedly poor were not always the miserably misshapen. Stooping over him, she slipped the last of her "blessings" into his hand, and after whispering the meaning of it all to him she slipped away just as air- like as she had come. Little Mika was accustomed to have ladies smile upon him sometimes and even with great outpourings of "Poor dear child," and the like, bestow upon him gifts of money or sweetmeats. But this was different, and if what she said was true, then his new treasure was far above the price of coppers fNlilca dealt only with coppersj and sweeter than any combination of the cane. "And what a coat she wore," was the next reflection of the lad. Nlika felt sure that were his mother on this earth with him, she'd be wearing just such a soft furry coat, and how he'd love to stroke it! While considering this newly discovered "might be bliss," Mika became conscious of a hand holding out to him the price of a paper. Sure enough, he had forgotten it was time for the "Smiley Man," and consequently time to leave the busy streets for the darker one, along which his home was situated. Mika had given the "Smiley Man" this much-to-be-coveted name, and he always chose to close the day with the memory of this customer fresh in his mind. But Mika had no need of the "Smiley Man" this evening, for as he reached the dark streets, it seemed the very darkness was smiling at him, and the stars seemed reckless enough to play leap frog. l-le tried to subdue his delight upon reaching the place he called home, for Aunt Sage, with whom he lived, had a natural disgust for activity in boys. V . "How many d'ye sell? " she mumbled as he entered. 62 "Same as always," he answered, but went on, unconscious of a glitter in his eye and flush upon his face, "Oh, something better has happened! l've got a pass, same as the other fellows, and l can go to the Great Cathedral and see the Prince. I-le's coming sure, Aunt Sage, the lady said so, and he's going to take some child away with him, back to his kingdom. It's on Christmas, Christmas night and there'll be bright lights, and wonderful music and happy children: that's what she said, Aunt, that's just what she said." Now Aunt Sage was that species of person who was guaranteed to drape every sunbeam with a cloud, and superstition was her god. "What's this," she spoke, "you, to the great Cathedral! It's a witchg I knew they'd get you! If yoi1'd keep a workin', they'd leave you alone, but l can't trust you out of my sight." A wail from her corner of the room made plain to Mika that the Christmas Festival must be a matter between himself and his heart alone. So did it remain through the following days as he anxiously counted the moments of the week preceding the great Festival and the coming of the Prince. Each day brought the same amazingly great crowds to the streets, each day brought the same amazingly few coppers into Mika's jeans. The only news in which the people seemed to be interested was in the coming of the Prince and that the papers did not contain. He wondered why they did not publish a papea all about the Prince: perhaps everybody knew all there was to know, he was coming on the night of the Great Festival, coming to the Cathedral, and from among all the children he would choose one for his own. Each time this prom- ise wound its way through Nlika's little head, it became more marvellous, and often did it warm the little body in those cold days :-cold, not only because of wind and weather, but also because every one seemed so distant, so intent on his own enhds. Finally came the day before the great event, and thrilled with the thought, Mika hastened to his post of duty, but not to stay, for before noon-time had passed over the hurrying crowds, little Mika had been carried, weak and fever- ish to his home by his old friend the policeman. Fight as he might, Mika could not overcome the disastrous work which cold winds had wrought in his bit of a body, and his strong friend laid him fainting upon the bed of straw in the dreary roopi, his home. Convinced of the power of the witch, Aunt Sage fear- ed to go near the child, and all through the night the burning little body wrestled unaided and alone. Sometimes there was talk of courage: he must go and see the Prince, the great lights, the lovely music and the happy children, but with a sob the wasted litle body would fall back upon the straw and for a long time the very air would seem to sob out the tale of a heart that must needs be as large as the body containing it, to bear all the pains fallen to its lot. The dawn of the great day came, but found little Mika even weaker. All through the day he murmured about the Prince, the lights, the music, and the happy children, and when evening came there were only sobs to tell of the pain of body and heart which one little lad met as his share. 63 But evening came to the outside world, too, and in the Cathedral were gathered the happy children and all those who awaited the coming of the Prince. Never had lights burned so brightly, and never had voices been more earnest in their singing, and never were children so happy. For a long, long time they sang but, strange to say, the Prince did not come. Patiently they waited, even more eagerly they sang, but still He did not come. Was it possible that so good and kind a Prince would fail them? He had always come to them before on this great night. Late in the evening there came rushing into the Cathedral an old woman who breathlessly told of how, while coming through the forest, she saw the Prince approaching, but returning to his Kingdom rather than seeking the Cathedral. I-liding behind a tree she saw that, 'folded in his arms, he carried a lad whom she recognized as Mika, the news-boy. The great Cathedral was all very still after her story, for they realized that the Prince had come, and by the cry of a boy-child in pain, had been led to the one he wished to take to his Kingdom, where there are always bright lights-and lovely music-and happy children. And now though there is always the great assembling at the Cathedral at Christmas time, the people never expect the Prince to come and choose one from among them, for they understand that down in some dark little room, where dwqls little joy and much pain, the Prince is 'Ending that which his Kingdom needs.

Kramlich l-lE short winter day was drawing to a close. Cn West Rosetter Street, the merry shouts of the youngsters who coasted down the hill sounded pleasantly through the dusk. The mothers of Rosetter Street had arranged with the tradesmen to transact their business in the morning so that the children might have a season of unalloyecl bliss in the snowy street after school. It was an admirable hill for coasting. As the street ended a short distance from the top of the hill, there was no danger of interruption from that quarter. An open field faced the row of prosperous looking homes and thus, although nominally within the city, they had many country advantages. The last of the "big" boys went shooting down the hill and Jamie Stuart with his admiring chum, Jane Sarah, prepared to follow. A door opened and a pleasant voice called, "John! Dick! Supper's ready!" Then another voice and still others called and Daniel and Myra, and Mary and Esther and Edward, and Bobby and Betty trooped cheerfully and expectantly in to supper. Presently, the door of the last of the houses opened and a sweet voice called, "Jamie! Jamie Stuart!" Now, of course, Jamie was loath to leave Jane Sarah and Jane Sarah's lip trembled. No one ever called her home. Then, too, Jane Sarah had begun to recall the circumstances of her departure from the house around the corner, "second turn to the left." She had slipped down the driveway and out through the half-open gates. The lure of the snow and the picture of the hill, from the nursery window, had been too much for her. Jamie was looking for her. Somehow, Jamie always looked out for Jane Sarah. l-Ie was rather an odd little fellow. The other mothers with their rosy-cheeked children often talked about him. I-le was a shy, delicate boy with a nose that seemed to have been made flat by too much pressing against the window-pane, watching other children play. When Jane Sarah Hrst appeared on the hill, and the others, after gazing somewhat curiously at her white coat and her dainty bonnet, 'had gone on with their fun, Jamie had edged quietly up to her. ln a moment, they were fast friends. He took her on his sled and the rides were simply wonderful to poor little Jane Sarah, whose days were spent, for the most part, in the care of Rose, her nurse, who was quite frequently angry and unobliging. This was her third appearance on the hill. Once, Rose had been with her and they had stopped only for a glimpse of the merriment, the other times, sllc had managed to get awav when no one was looking. Now Jamie must go. Jane Sarah had observed that when the quiet 'lady in black called, Jamie always went, at once. Then Jane Sarah was alone. ,At .last ,she jumped up and, dragging her sled, set out for home. 70 Meanwhile, Jane Sarah's father had returned from the city. When he asked for Jane Sarah, the trembling Rose, sobbing, said that Miss Jane was lost. She, Rose, had not seen her since four o'clock. She had supposed her to be in the nursery, but when she came to look, she was gone. She had looked everywhere in the house for her. Jane Sarahls father hurried up to his wifets room to console her. Jane Sarah's mother was ill. No one knew what was the matter with her. lt is doubtful if she knew herself. She sat in her invalid chair all day long and was rapidly becoming a discontented woman. Now, she was fretting because Jane Sarah could not be found. In the midst of the confusion, a very tired and somewhat bedraggled Jane Sarah appeared on the wide veranda. Nurse pulled her, hastily, into the hall. "I didn't dare tell mistress that you were lost, until a little while ago. You are to go upstairs at once. Your father is here and was just going to telephone for the police to look for you." As she talked, Rose was pushing Jane up the steps and along the corridor to her mother's room. Before she quite realized it, she was standing, blinking, before her parents. tSuch was Jane Sarah's homecomingj "Jane Sarah Todd, where have you been?" said the fretful voice to which Jane was accustomed. "You will drive me crazy with this constant worrying about you." "Coasting," said Jane Sarah, sullenly. "Coasting!" cried Mrs. Todd. "Where did you go coasting? ". "'Were you alone?" asked Jane's father. "On the hill with Jamie," replied Jane Sarah. "Jamie, Jamie who?" "Jamie Stuart." Jane remembered the sweet voice calling Jamie Stuart and her eyes Glled with tears as she thought how she would like' to be called to supper. "Jamie Stuart," repeated Nlrs. Todd. Jane's mother and father exchanged glances. "That must be Nlargaret's boy. You know they moved there last month. That Stuart's father was called Jamie," said Nlrs. Todd to her husband. i"Jamie Stuart, indeed." "Jane Sarah, don't you ever go coasting there again. That boy isn't fit company for you." "No, don't go there again, Jane Sarah." This father said with com- pressed lips. ' And so the matter rested. Jane Sarah wondered and wondered. A thaw came and coasting was over for the time. Nlany weary days past before Jane Sarah came again to the hill. There had come a blizzard and Jane Sarah could see the hill from her window. Nurse had gone to the kitchen for a chat. Jane Sarah quietly went for her coat and hat, and, snatching her sled from the hall closet, she ran down the snowy, driveway and along the silent street to the hill. There were fewer children than usual and they were very quiet and subdued. Jamie wasn't there. When Jane Sarah 71 asked where he was, they told her, in awestruck tones that Jamie was sick. They pointed to the window of the last house in the row. Jane had a glimpse of a white-clad figure. She was frightened. Once, father had been ill and she had never forgotten the awful day and night when no one cared tor her and every one went about with white, drawn faces. She sat down on her sled to consider, and the next moment was flying down the hill. When she reached the end, she looked about her somewhat dazedly. This was the last house-the door was open a trifle. Jane Sarah looked about her. All the children were engaged with their sport. She darted up the steps, across the porch and in through the door. She climbed the stairs and there, in a great white bed, was-Jamie. "Jane Sarah," muttered the boy feverishly as he had many times before. And Jane Sarah came. Without a word, she ran to the bed. Jamie smiled and, holding her hand, went fast asleep. The nurse and the doctor breathed a sigh of relief. "ls he all right? " said Mrs. Stuart, anxiously. "lt is the crisis. I think he will pull through," he replied. "Who is-" with a nod toward Jane Sarah. The white bonnet was decidedly crooked on the golden curls, the coat was white no longer, but Jane Sarah looked supremely happy. Of a sudden, there was a commotion down stairs. An insistent voice said, "Yes, Jane Sarah Todd. Is she here? We found her sled before your door." 4 Margaret Stuart started. She knew that voice and also the one which said rather courteously, 'fWill you please send her here? " There was some demur on the part of the maid, then the sound of hurried footsteps and on the threshold appeared-Jane Sarah's father and mother.. "You," gasped Margaret. Mrs. Todd was about to reply when she caught sight of Jane Sarah, holding tightly to Jamie's hand. She stopped short. "'Yes," said Margaret, in answer to the unspoken question, "that is Jamie. He has been ill," with a catch in her voice, "very ill, indeed. He has called and called for Jane Sarah, and we did not know whom he meant. Will you not permit her to stay? " The mothers looked at each other. Then, impulsively reaching out her hand, Margaret cried, "Cannot we be friends again, Kathleen? Cannot we forget the old, old quarrels of our fathers and be as before?" With a cry, Kathleen took the hand and with a kiss, the breach was healed. No one seemed to realize that Kathleen Todd was walking. She had forgotten it herself. She was an invalid no longer. A sleepy sigh from Jane Sarah roused the three united friends. Jane Sarah Todd was fast aileep, But then she was only seven and she was dreadfully tired. Finis. . 71? '49 Y , , A - -l'?I5i7'??!f-ii ' ,, Y . , - ' .I.f,L'6f'.i7'.." Senior Road Club THE SPECTATOR Vol. 1 Forgive and Forget No, 1 A Thursday, December 11, 1913 The Writer Although my existence in this world has been coniparatively short, I have had a life of more than ordinary excitement. When a mere infant, I ac- quired the habit of falling down every pair of Steps with which I came in contact. This naturally kept the affectionate members of the family in a somewhat nervous condition, but as I never received more serious injuries than a swollen forehead or a brightly- colored shin, they gradually be- came accustomed to my shrieks and yells, at last growing so hard- heartecl that they paid no atten- tion to them, whatsoever. It was during this period of my life that I endured the hard- ships of falling by turns into the cider press, the flour barrel and the milk pails. It was my chief accomplishment, this ability to allow gravity to work so freely, but it brought me little good, and as I grew older, it must be con- fessed, a great deal of trouble. My first tooth, white and shin- ing, the pride of relations near and far, I released my claim to, by falling prostrate over a cellar door. And my first plait, the joy of my heart, had no sooner reached that stage when a ribbon attached to the end, than it was done away with by a savage cousin and his tomahawk in a game of Indians. In this at least I was not to blame, and I pray you please to note it, for the inno- cent moments of my life are few and far between. But all this did not keep me from growing. Bless you no! I went higher and higher till now I could easily scale the clilf to the Giant's land without the aid of Jack's bean-stalk. At nrst I was proud of it, but now I know that it is not the kind of height to bring into my story. Ieleroines are always tall, to be sure, but they are never clumsy. Yet perhaps they never 'had the adventures I have been through, so I -doubt whether, despite my unlucky star, I would change places with them. Composed and written for B II English and brought to class in the High School for Girls, Reading, Pennsylvania, on Thursday, December 11, 1913. THE SPECTATOR Vol. 1 Do unto others as you would have them do unto to you. No. 1 Thursday, December 11, 1913 The Writer Perhaps it will interest you to know a few facts and events of the writer. A bright, clear day was December 4, 1895, when I formed an addition to the family. 'Twas a great day indeed, for girl babies were rare in our family circle. I was the proud hope of both my mother and father, and I0 say nothing of what my four brothers thought of me would be unfair. They all were proud of their little sister, who they imagined would not fuss and Hght with them. I soon discouraged that idea and entered with my whoe heart into their daily "scraps" I spent one year in a kinder- garten, where I learned only baby play. My big heart yearned for bigger things. At the age of six years I began my career, for such it was, in the public school of our famous city. I was very brilliant in my child- hood days. 1 was very quick in grasping things both with my mind and my little hands. From my mother I inherited that so- called mania, "talking," which will no doubt linger with me for- ever. l was always romping with the boys, consequently, I was termed "tomboyish." My mother wanted ime to be interested in domestic affairs but, no, boy sport was what pleased me. And still I grew but only one way. Up! People often remarked, "She grows like a weed," but it was with great pride that I beheld my increase in height. Now l'n1 in the High School for Girls, but alas! where has my brilliancy gone? The times are decreased when I must be re- minded, "Lilah, you are a big girl now." My incessant talking still clings to me and almost sets my teachers wild. A close will come to my school career, perhaps some day, and 'twill be a happy and also a sad day. I am proud to say that I have realized that it is never too late to learn. About my personal appearance ll would have to consult the mirror which I have no intentions of ldoing. One feature of which 1 lain proud, although it excites comment, is my nose. The rea- son why I am proud of it is be- cause it is out of the ordinary. My feet are inclined to assume enormous portions but then that indicates a good foundation and l'm sure they are hereditary, too. The rest l'll let you decide for yourself but first, "Look at me."

NO. 2 Monday, December 'l5,, 1913 g The Class Every class is a garden, but our garden contains some of the love- liest flowers of all. First of all there is little Johnny- jump-up, her blue eyes dancing with mischief and her short legs continually swaying to and fro. She hates to sit still and can often be seen walking up and down the aisles of the Main Room, seem- ingly in search of mischief, and here let it be said, with all rever- ence, that she often linds it. Yet despite her restlessness, Johnny- jump-up is a most affectionate little creature and has declared that when through with lessons, she will always look back with pleasure upon her dear teachers. Saucy little Black-eyed-Susaii is one ofthe worst chatterboxes of all, for like the brook, her tongue "goes on forever." She is chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, with merry dark eyes, and a low soft voice, which people always enjoy hearing. She en- joys an argument immensely and can usually be trusted to win her point. She enjoys writing her themes and essays, standing high in ou.r class, but I believedshe is as glad as l am that our sentence work is over. Grandmother Sage, who really looks quite young for her age, is continually imagining that Father Time has robbed her ot her youth- ful beauty. The dear old soul has a great deal of worry in this world, for she lives in daily dread of growing stout. This, however, does not keep lier cheeks from Iilooming' red, or her eyes from gazing over her spectacles in the merriest way possible. And Grandmotlrer Sage is a great favorite with the young people, being able to equal them in the art of talking without any effort at all.

No. 2 Monday, December 15, 1913 The Class l have been authorized to describe the members of my Eng- lish class. For the simple reason that my qualifications are not great enough, l will not endeavor to describe them all. l have selected for criticism four ladies with whom l am best acquainted. My intentions are to exhibit their good or bad traits of character in such a way, so that the unfortu- nate one who is being criticized, will not know it is she. Under- stand l said these were my inten- tions, whether they will be car- ried out successfully, remains to be seen. One more word, my dear Class, I sincerely entreat you, it you happen to be under criticism to take no ollense, for none is meant. The first is a young lady, tall and thin, who has a mania for semi-colons. This dear one imagines that at every pause, a semi-colon is needed. She is known to us as Meg, and she is universally admired. She is very clever, this damsel, and expresses her high opinions, whether good or had, without tear. Again, she is a student of Latin, and, when- ever long words come up for dis- cussion, Meg is always sure to expound her superior knowledge of that beloved branch. Next is a tall, very graceful young damsel. l-ler cheeks are like the roses themselves, and often l 'find myself wondering if they are artiiicial or real. This excellent young lady is always in trouble, through her continuous talking, she starts to talk or play the minute she enters the class- room, and could never cease if she were not told to do so. She tis the possessor of an affectionate heart given to love. Her love is proven by the deep atiection and devotion she bears one of our excellent teachers of the school. The next on the roll is a tiny, tiny dwarf. I-ter name is Smiles, and she surely lives up to her name. Whenever she laughs she displays an even set of pearly teeth. By some miracle or an- other, this maiden commenced school in 1893 although she tirst made her entrance into this world in 1897. I wish l was capable of prescribing some recipe by ,which she might grow a few feet or even inches. All these worthy young mai- dens were engaged in a wild dis- pute as to whether Rowena or Rebecca was the heroine of "lvanhoe.'i One might imagine their lives depended upon the out- fcome, by the way they were rag- ing. In the course of a few moments, another member of the class made her appearance. This person, Laughing Eyes by name, settled the dispute. Her word is law among us and though her decision could not have pleased all the maidens, it was accepted as gospel for it came from the beautiful lips of one beloved.

All Nature's sons triumph While joyful May doth lastg When May is gone, of all the year The pleasant time is past. May makes the cheerful hueg May breeds and brings new bloodg May marcheth throughout every limbg May makes the merry mood. May pricketh tender hearts Their warbling notes to tuneg- Full strange it is, yet some, we see, Do make their May in June. Thus things are strangely wrought While joyful May doth last: Take May in time! When May is gone, The pleasant time is past. All ye that live on earth, And have your May at will, Rejoice in May, as I do now, And use your May with skill. Use May while that you may, For Nlev hath but his time!

See the dew-drops how they kiss Every little flower that isg Hanging on their velvet heads, Like a rope of crystal beadsg ' See the heavy clouds low falling, And bright Hesperus down calling The dead night from undergroundg At whose rising mists unsound, Damps and vapours fly apace, I-lovering o'er the wanton face Of these pastures, where they bloom: Therefore from such danger lock Every one his loved gtlockg And let your dogs lie loose without, Lest the wolf come as a scout 'From the mountain, and, ere day, Bear a lamb or kid awayg Or the Crafty, thievish fox Break upon your simple flocks. To secure yourselves from these Be not too secure in easeg Let one eye his watches keep While the other eye doth sleep, So you shall good shepherds prove, And forever hold the love Of our great god. Sweetest slumbers, And soft silence, fall in numbers On your eyelids! So farewell! Thus I end my evening's knell. -J ohn Fletcher. 93 x The May-Pole Dance The Mountains "For the mountains shall bring peace to the people." Miriam L. Stirl ERHAPS the people of Sandow, which is a small central Western village, realized in a way the beauty of rolling prairies and vast plain: and for this reason they "raved," as tourists do, upon beholding hills and mountains because they were novel and a beautiful sight for eyes accustomed to low level stretches of land. But Sandow wasn't always the rich town it is now, boasting of all the new buildings. And neither was there time nor money enough to permit of education by traveling. But now we can travel, for we've made our region prosper, and what with our new farm machinery, we have plenty of time for "eddication," as our deacon says. The man who has the most money, the mostitime, and il reckon the most education is James Maas. But he didn't always have those things, and thatts why he has his old friends come to the Big House whenever he is home, and he is just as kind and open as ever, even though he meets all the big men of the land in his travels. Just about a month after .lim's 'last trip abroad, which is almost live years past as l remember, he brought out quite a collection of pictures, photographs, and curios. As usual, I went to talk things over with him, and hear about his trip, and see what he had purchased. Gne miniature, the daintiest and most charming of half a dozen, was painted on a cobweb, and protected in a frame of delicately carved wood. The scene was typical of Tyrol, with a lofty peak in the background and a peasant shepherd with his flocks. alt seemed incredible that anything of so sheer and 'line a web could be painted upon, and yet there was the miniature, an oval no larger than two square inches, proving' the dexterity of some gentle hand. And the picture fascinated me all the more when I heard this tale from its owner: "Meran used to be the capital of Tyrol, the mountainous 'southeastern part of Austria. On the Pardoi Summit overlooking the former court city, is a picturesque inn, whose host sells trinkets to the few travellers who pass that wayg and it was from him that the painting was brought, he relating part of what you now hear. "ln Vinschgau, the district in the pass high above the Meran Valley, and twelve miles from the city, is the small village Dorf Reschen. There is the Dornsberg Castle, which even to this day is well preserved. "ln the middle of the seventeenth century, through family feuds, the castle was untenanted, and only Wilhelm Schotten lived in the attendant's house down by the gate. Here the Ortler Alps tower above,-and the Aidge River rushes and roars in the Etsch Valley below. And the Ortler-Spitz, graceful, pine-dressed, and snow-capped, beautiful in the light of moon and 95 Sun, rose as a guardian over the lone care-taker. Little wonder that the man with so magnificent a view of the famous Dolomites could but grow in a sense of humbleness and content, knowing that he was but finite. "His livelihood was obtained by herding sheep on the hillside, and carving the quaint knick-knacks that sold for a good sum in the city. He rarely met with any one, and it was a rare surprise to him one morning to discover a baby, warmly wrapped, lying near his door. He wondered not a little and rejoiced for a companion of his own kind, for the canaries he raised, however cheery, could not talk. "The baby boy grew, and years passed. When he was a young man, his foster-father died. But during that time he had been taught from the older 1l1Ill1,S experiences, and from the priest in the little village, and out of doors had come close to the birds, and flowers, and the universe of stars. Thus he was sturdy and kind and wonderfully Hue and sensitive. Carving and herding he had learned from his guardian, but he had by instinct taken to painting, when quite a boy, and in this his father could not help, indeed, the lad did not need any help. "While his father had still lived, he had promised to go to the big cities to sell his cobweb pictures. It was he, Ernest Schotten, that had painted this light, almost fairy-like masterpiece. I-le was successful in the sale of these dainty laces, traveling to Munich and Paris and staying rather long in Paris. But the money seemed to trouble him, and he could not stand the falsity of people who schemed and connived and strove for worldly gain. And their tastes were not his, he was stifled and longed for his great mountains. He alone, out of all his acquaintances, out of all his patrons, knew of "beauty old yet ever new, inward voice and inward word." So he returned to Dorf Reschen, and there continued to paint the miniature masterpieces. He found a haven among the heights, and spent the last of his days there. "His paintings have disappeared, and his name is unknown, nor did he ever know whence he derived his artistic ability. But in 1709, so the inn- keeper said, one Louis, Count of Dornberg, was interested in the life of this stranger, and his exquisite works. He then worked back upon certain clues, and found that Ernest Schotten was none other than the descendant of one of Italy's greatest painters, that Admadeus, second son of Titian, had married Acelie, daughter of Handenburg, and taken her family name. Con- sequently upon the loss of family fortune, the granddaughter of Admadeus had given her child to Schotten for him to raise without knowledge of its parentage. And though Ernest Schotten is not famous, not even known, he, by his broad true life and devotion to the inspiring mountains, gave an example to those of his timesf' 96 ur St. Patliiok Party i I T Z., "Come back to Erin, Nlavourneen, Mavourneen, Come bacl-1 again to the land of thy birth. Come with the shamrocks and springtime, Nlavourneen, And its Killarney shall ring with thy mirth." These were the strains that resounded through the halls of our school on the night of the most enjoyable and long-to-be-remembered St. Patrick Party given in honor of the Faculty, by the Class of 19,l5. Everyone in our class was more or less 'tfussed up" about this auspicious occasion, for there were entertaimnents to be planned, a dainty menu to be thought out, and numerous arrangements to be made to make the affair a success, and a success it proved to be. Early in the week the teachers received invitations, written in green ink, on cards decorated with shamrocks. After this, every senior was far from idle, for we all realized that in order to make the atiiair a success every one had to do her part. That evening, as the teachers arrived, they were directed to the main room. They were greeted in the second hall by the reception committee, composed of the ofncers of the class. On entering the room everybody was given two or three green paper hats. While the presentation of these hats 97 was in progress, we were entertained by the orchestra,-Margaret Zell, pianist, Rhena Terry, Helen Lutz and Beulah Knabb, violinists,-with several classical ? selections, among which "Tipperary" seemed to be the favorite. A few started to dance, but soon found that collisions with the seats of the main room were entirely too numerous, and the attempt was abandoned. In order to "break the icej' the hat game was begun. lt was the object of every one to engage in conversation with another, and secure the answer "Yes" or "No," lf she succeeded, the person to whom she was talking would then forfeit ia hat. For the next game, each guest was given three potatoes to throw through the mouth of a green pig, painted on canvas which was suspended across the north doorway. All advanced valiantly to perform this apparently easy feat, but few accomplished it. The next game, in which the cleverness of our tutors was perhaps best manifested, was a college game. Clara Kramlich read a story, in which all parts omitted were to be 'Hlled in with the names of colleges. About this time, the song, "Come Back to Erin" was heard floating up from the first hall. All in the main room were summoned to that hall where refreshments were served by the hostesses of the evening. As they descended the stairs, they were greeted by a most enchanting sight. The hall was nearly filled with small tables, each table bearing two lighted candles, and presided over by a hostess. As the teachers wended their way among the tables, they found their own by means of dainty little place cards decorated with shamrocks, and bearing their names in green ink. A most enjoyable time ensued during which a delightful repast was served, consisting of pistachio ice cream, cake, candy, and chocolate, con- taining melted marshmallows-which, by the way, would not melt. Everything looked very festive, the flowers, candlelight and pretty dresses, all combining towards securing this effect. After lingering a while over the repast, we again proceeded to the second hall, where a Virginia Reel was enjoyed to the tune of many of the airs of long ago, played by the violinists. This scene carried us back to the days of our grandmothers. ' The affair closed with the singing of the songs "Tippperrary," "Come Back to Erin" and "Good-night, Ladies." This delightful event will doubtless long be remembered by all of us, and we trust that the memory of it will be a very pleasant one. 98 1 n Q5 sw! H e - - J fe fo 'QA D N -J L, .

Brunner You know we are glad you are here, and we're going to be presuming enough to believe that you are glad we are here. After you have kept an anxious watch over all our school girl career, it must be gratifying to be of a surety gathered together to share in the end of it all. We have planned to turn away from the beaten trail of custom this morning and omit from the program the class history and the prophecy. You probably all know our history, and perhaps have joined with us in some of our pleasures. In thinking of the latter, l cannot refrain from uttering the gratitude that is in the heart of each girl to our principal and the teachers for all the help they have given us by the way. This help was not only the directing of our thoughts-a task which at times they must have felt in vain,- but also the interest and aid they gave us on our gala days when they cheerily sold our wares, tricked out most amazing costumes for our adornment, trained our voices into at least a semblance of sweet sound, and now Hnally have prepared a very mysterious chest of gifts, characteristic of our idiosyn- crasies, we believe. We would extend to them our kindest wishes for the future and unbounded thanks for the many times they have been to us "hope's calm eyes seen through the gloom." We shall present to you this morning a specimen of our dramatic ability,-an endowment-and I say it in all humility-which makes us feel very superior. Our natural bent seems to be toward Dickens, for besides a very clumsy Tilly Slowboy and kindly John Peerybingle with whom you soon will become acquainted, we have in our number a most spectacular Marley, a buxom Mrs. Fezziwig, a fine and hospitable set of Cratchits, and a grumbling but eventually repentant Scrooge. We hope that our little play will call forth on your countenances the same expression of joy that Dickens so often causes us to see on Nlr. Pickwick's Visage. He, when de- lighted, we are told, 'tagitated his countenance from one auricular organ to the other." So much for to-day. But what of the to-morrowshfor which these years have prepared us. We shall not attempt to prophesy, for your wiser minds might remind us that "a girl's will is the wind's' will, and the thoughts of youth are long, long tlioughtsf, , The future were better left to sing its 104 own ditty. But surely we must have a token of these past years to take into those to come, and as that token we have chosen these bright daisies as our class flower. Legend may tell you they are hearts of gold with circlets of white and lovely deeds, and observation has shown you that, free from vanity and selnshness, they grow all along the dusty highways and far up among the otherwise barren crags, which the more timid blooms shun. By loyalty to these characteristics of our emblem we can best be true to you and to ourselves, and far along the road that stretches ahead you shall hear our song: " For we can say, Life still is good, And all its ills may be withstood, Because it gave us at the start A This talisman within our heart."

Nlemories now, although only four short years ago we were freshmen together, years that have sped quickly until now, in cap and gown, we stand hopefully on the thresholdof a. newiworld. And now it is that we think of all that has been done for us during our stay here, and we realize that it willl be hard to give up our gymnasium, for we really feel as though we may call it ours, since it was surely for our benefit it was given to the school,-hard to give it .upto the lower classes who can never appreciate it as we have done, and surely never love it as well. lt is hard, too, to forfeit our Tuesday and Friday swims in-the "Nat," andrgive up the precious ticket which ushered us into the pool free of charge. lt was here thatithe Seniors aisimguisiieal themselves, 'and' here' in 'the 'cold' clear .water 'exhibited proudly their swimming -fuia-ai'vmg- stunts, often, too, 'caring tenderly for the dripping Freshinen, who, 'whetherthey 'would' or nofshowed ever decided tendencies to strike bottom.

Who does not remember our May Day, ,wit-h its laughing lads UD and lasses, its merry. singing and .above all its May,Queen? There was indeed, in the words' of the song, ffnever, never such a,Queen",and 1915 is .as proud of her asucanrbe, " .V Not content with the fame ,won through our May Day, we must further add to 19-15's glory by increasing the natural beauties of our own hills, and in the capacity of,treelplanter,s, the Seniors excelled as in all- else they have under-taken. I Over six .thousand tiny firs- and spruces, in later ,years-to shed their beauty over the whole' hillside, form 'a class memorial better far than the most beautiful statue of marble. We have, to be sure, made our blunders and mistakes as even the best or classes will do, but we feel that any errors committed during our Freshman yczar have been more than atoned for by our shining record of later years. Think of our Christmas play, the silver cup we have presented to the Athletic Association of the Reading Schools, and the model cooks and house- wives we have become, and you must agree that 1915 is indeed a banner class, worthy of all the praise her loyal members can bestow upon her. 109 CLASS DAY PLAY "The Cricket on the Hearth" Dramatized from the story by Charles Dickens.

ACI-IENBACH RETROSPECTIVE glance over the world's history serves to show us that the word or deed of but an individual can be responsible for the destiny of great nations: the survival of certain civilizations or the religious attitude of generations yet unborn, for " We are but the instrument of Heaven, Our work is not design, but destiny." Every book-lined shelf is really a curtain through the chinks of which we may peep at the past, hear what men were saying, and see what they were doing in the years gone by. Then, too, we may behold great and completed achievements, and learn how movements, which have become turning-points in the world's course, arose, were carried on, and reached their consummation. Sometimes, indeed, we may perceive that the greatest of these often, like valuable pictures, hung on the smallest of nails, and we may see how the mightiest impulses which have stirred mankind were accom- panied throughout by a series of lesser incidents which go far to make up the pleasures and the pains of daily experience. There never, indeed, was a time in which sugar was not sweet, buttons did not come off, chimneys did not smoke, and bread was buttered on both sides. It has been said that "probably some of the three hundred at Thermopylae had colds in their chests and the decay of the Roman Empire was surely accompanied by that of many Roman teeth. Gibbons does not mention this, but it concerned ancient history more personally than the conduct of Julius Caesar." The little threads and fringes of life are ever showing themselves, and events which cast great shadows were accompanied by insistent daily needs, enjoyments, and habits. , When, four hundred and ninety years before the birth of Christ, the Athenian Council of War met on the eastern coast of Attica to consider whether or not they should give battle to the Persian host camped on the Helds of Marathon, "on the result of their deliberations depended not merely the fate of two armies, but the whole future progress of human civilization." .112 Moreover, the decision rested not so much upon the council as a whole as upon the vote of the eleventh member-Callimachus the War-Ruler. Until the very last ballot was cast, those for and- against battle had been of an equal number. Callimachus cast his ballot for war. As a direct result of the battle of Marathon, the Greeks warded ott' completely the invasions planned by the Persians, who, during the past rifty years, had enthralled almost every kingdom of the world as it was then known. Greece was, at that time, the most highly cultured nation in the world. To have been subjugated and enslaved by barbaric hordes from the East, would have been utterly detrimental to all her progress in art and literature. More than twelve centuries later, when the Franks defeated' the Saracens at the battle of Tours, this same question of an Eastern versus a Western civilization was again decided. Playing a most important role upon the stage of the world's history, the Franks, after conquering Rome, assimilated Roman culture and became in turn the civilizers of all the Teutonic tribes which had remained in their homes on the opposite side of the Rhine. This is the age of Charlemagne and his paladins, of his wonderful nephew Roland and the devoted friend Oliver, all immortalized in the long narrative poem of a later century, the Chanson de Roland, a stirring account of battles and well-nigh miraculous deeds. Though the Franks were as powerful as the Romans had ever been, yet they did not allow absolutism to gain a foothold, but, by establishing a medium between imperial power and the rights of their subjects, they succeeded in leaving little opportunity for revolt to assert itself. Of such endurance were their laws, that most of them are yet the foundation of the legal systems of Central and Western Europe. From a religious point of view, the importance of this battle is even greater. Having overcome Spain, the Saracens were preparing to over- whelm Europe, to the accomplishment of which purpose they had already reached the center of Franceg but it was here at Tours that the Franks completely routed the Saracens with their Mohamrnedanism. That battle fixed the religious destiny of Europe. The religions of Persia, Egypt, Greece and Rome have perished, those of Confucius, of Buddha, and of Mohammed remain stationary, but Christianity, hrst spread over Europe and then to the New World, has ever since been advancing into newer and broader forms of moral and social activity. In ten hundred sixty-six, the history of a- large and, -to' us, a very imf portant part of the civilized world again hinged upon the outcome of a single battle. Had there been no William the Conqueror' at the Battle of Hastings, there would probably be today no British empire and, perhaps, no America, each with its wide-spread influence over the whole of mankind. The Saxon tribes of old England had made but little progress in government in the years after they had invaded Celtic Britain after 449 A. D., but when the energetic Normans set foot upon English soil, they "high-mettled the blood of our veins" while the conquered Saxons succeeded in giving the Normans enough sturdiness to take oft the edge 'of their national character. . ' It Q f 113 History is strangely a matter of IF. If, for eaxmple, in our own land Conrad Weiser had not succeeded in inducing the Indians known as the Six Nations to remain neutral through the French and Indian wars, they would have probably sided with the French, thrown the balance of power in favor of that people, and eventually driven the English out of America. To the thirteen colonies that would have undoubtedly meant French institutions, French language, French culture, and we today might still be speaking the French tongue and following French ideals. Continuing with European history, we find that the great Napoleon by his plans and aspirations gave a new aspect to the history of his times, but a little rain to prevent the action of his cavalry as planned, and the failure of auxiliary troops to arrive at the critical moment, took from Napoleon, forever, the power of dictatorship over all Europe which he had up to that time held within the hollow of his hand. With the downfall of Napoleon, there were crushed at the same time the fond hopes of the French people for supremacy in the world of power. Never since then have there been so many monarchs of French blood as Napoleon placed upon the various thrones of Europe, his brother Louis, king of Holland, his brother Joseph, king of Naples and Spain, his brother Jerome, king of Westphalia, his brother-in-law Murat, King of Naples, his step-son, Viceroy of Italy. Never since then have the French had so great a controlling interest in the affairs of the world. When the sun of Napoleon's brilliance had set, many other planets passed through the sky of history leaving upon the earth their light and shadow. In the past, war has had an undeniable influence upon the story of mankind. It has been the " Great corrector of enormous times, Shaker of o'er-rank states, the grand decider Of dusty and old titles." It was undoubtedly the French Revolution, that tremendous struggle for political equality, that marked the downfall of royal despotism in civilized countries. In very recent years, so recent that all but the very youngest of us can know of it, we have seen the downfall of royal despotism in countries not so civilized. The seed that was sown in extravagance and rashness by the French has slowly spread over the earth. Today keen eyes see, in an almost world-wide disturbance, the death-blow of royalty itself. History is in the making now in its most terrible manner. We well may wonder whether this is another great turning-point in the history of the world. Happily the world's progress has not always or most frequently hinged on war. One of the greatest boons tocivilization was the invention of the printing press by the German Gutenberg. That meant greater religious and intellectual liberty. It meant the diffusion of new ideas, it meant the gradual downfall of absolutisni and the rise of small, freedom-loving states. It helped to drag Spain from its haughty elevation, to raise Holland and England to positions out of all proportion to their size. 114 Surely we are living in eventful times. Never have so many changes disturbed the surface of the world's calm. China, old, wrinkled, apathetic, is doing its very best to establish a republic. If that effort is successful,-we self-satisfied Occidentals think,-what may not happen? In truth, the last three or four generations have been living in such an age of wonders that we have become almost hardened. Today wireless telegraphy, aero- planes, submarines, no longer cause us any thrills. No one can deny that all of these have greatly aliected various phases of our complex civilization. However, it is in the realm of ideas and principles that the greatest crisis of history occur, or at least are felt most keenly. The battles of Marathon and of Tours are especially important because they represent a struggle for liberty and self-expression, Hastings marks the beginning of a firm, just, well-balanced government in England, a government that was largely a model for our own national system, Waterloo represents the well- deserved downfall of a purely selfish lust for control. The French Revolu- tion stands out prominently, aside from its excesses, because it promulgated an idea of liberty and equality. The printing-press served its purpose because it bore these and other messages of advancement to peoples of former times, and still bears them to us. "lt is in the past," writes a modern philosopher, "that destiny finds all her weapons, her vestments, her jewels." May she find these, is our hope, in the world of ideas, not in the world of brute force! D 115 , The importance of Shakespea1'e's I-Ieroines SALUTATORY CLARA V. KRAMLICH ' CCORDING to a recent writer, "We of today, harp on the words 'modern,' 'advanced,' 'twentieth century,' as though the human products of former ages were very different beings. Yet, if we read old history, old tiction, old biography, or especially old verse, we are struck by the eternal verities of human nature, and see our 'modern' girls with their 'modern' longings and their 'modern' rebellions and revolts reflected as in true mirrors, with only the frames of a quaint bygone fashion." This is the door which opens the way for us to see our sisters of yester- day. If we are to search old verse, where better than in Shakespeare, for Shakespeare's heroines are essentially real and feminine? In some vivacious, merry girl of today with a love for masquerading, we may rind Shakespeare's Viola or Rosalind with all their coquettish airs and graces. In some loyal friend with witticisms ever at her ton0tue's end we L5 l may meet with a Beatrice. Perchance, we may glimpse a dignined Portia with a love of letters. So we might gather groups of Julias Silvias l-leros and perhaps a few Ophelias, a whole galaxy of maidens of the past and present. To our surprise, we should find them at heart very much alike. Ruskin says: "Shakespeare has no heroes,-he has only heroines. The catastrophe of every play is caused always bv the folly or fault of a man' - J the redemption if there be any, is by the wisdom and virtue of a woman, and failing that, there is none." In "The Merchant of Venice," it is by means of Portia's aid that Antonio is freed and Shylock is punished. Cordelia in "King Learn rescues her father whom his other daughters have abused, and comforts him through the remaining hours of her life. Ophelia, in "Hamlet," fails at the crucial moment and there is no redemption. Lady Macbeth, in "Macbeth," is unable to save either herself or her husband. The women in the comedies of Shakespeare are especially entertaininox .f b These heroines are of diverse natures,-jealous, loyal, artful and 1 ' K , ovrng. In 'The Comedy of Errors," Adrianna is the wife of Antipholus of Ephesus l wio was separated from his twin brother, called Antipholus of Syracuse, when a child. This brother comes to Ephesus and because the brothers look exactl alik all ' ' ' -' ' ' y e, 1 sorts of complications arise. Adrranna mistakes Antipholus of Syracuse for her husband. Her' supposed husband is very stron 1 1 ' gb' attracted to Adrianna's sister, Lucarria. At length, the misunderstandings are ' 'ht d - ' rig e , and the mother and father of the twins find each other and their children. Adrianna is jealous and selfish and dependent for support upon the stronger character of Lucania, who is the opposite of her sister in almost all respects and by far the better character. 116 ln great contrast to Adrianna is Julia in t'Two Gentlemen of Verona." Ruskin in his "Sesame and Lilies" says, "And what shall l say of Julia, constant against the 'Iickleness 'of a lover who is a mere wicked child?" Julia's lover, Proteus, who spends his time sighing for the fair Julia and dreading his father's anger if he disclose his love, goes to Milan to acquire, if possible, the culture of that court. Here he is enamored of the Lady Silvia who reproves him for his disloyalty to Julia and will not listen to his love. Meanwhile, Julia waits patiently and hopefully at home until, at last, in the disguise of a page, she seeks Milan for news of her lover. Julia, who fondly believes, " l-Iis words are bonds, his oaths are oracles, His love sincere," in Milan learns the story of his new love. When Proteus sees her in the forest, he heartily repents and is readily forgiven. "Much Ado About Nothing" appeals to us because of its humor mixed with a certain amount of pathos. The interest is divided between Hero and Beatrice, although Beatrice is the stronger character. Hero, Beatrice says, considers it her duty to say, "Father, as it please you." Beatrice vows she will never marry and her friends enter into a plot to engage her affections. Hero, accordingly, who knows Beatrice is behind the arbor listening to every word, says, " But Nature never fram'd a woman's heart Of prouder stuff than that of Beatrice. Disdain and scorn ride sparkling in her eyes, Misprizing what they look on, and her wit Values itself so highly that to her All matters else seem weak, she cannot love, Nor take no shape nor project of affection, She is so self endeared." She continues with an enumeration of a certain Benedick's manly qualities and his hopeless passion for Beatrice. Benedick is, in a similar way, informed of Beatricets love and the affair reaches a happy consummation. Beatrice, however, has a sturdier side to her clracter. When Hero is falsely accused by her father and her lover, Claudio, Beatrice stands bravely by her cousin. She maintains her position until Hero's innocence is proven. Beatrice'is witty, impulsive, loyal, gay,-altogether lovable, yet Hero, quiet and sincere, is no less attractive. Miranda, the heroine in "The Tempest," is of still another type. She is bashful, sweet, dignified, and gracious. Her devotion to her father is a prominent characteristic. She has been called the "Eve of an enchanted Paradise." All her life has been spent on a desert island with her father, the exiled Duke of Milan. When she sees Ferdinand, the son of the King of Naples, the 'first man she has seen beside her father and a slave, she falls in love immediately. She weeps because of her unworthiness to wed one whom 117 she looks upon as little less than a god. However, in the end every one is made happy and the wrongs which have been done to her father' are forgotten and forgiven. Warton calls 'tThe Merry Wives of Windsor" the most complete specimen of Shakespeare's comic powers." lt is the tale of Mistress Page and Mistress Ford in their efforts to lead Sir John Falstaff a merry chase and, incidentally, to prove their love and Hdelity to their husbands. Mistress Page is witty and very inventive and, indeed, usually led in their mischievous schemes. Between them, they arrange Falstaif's call upon Mistress Ford, the sudden return of her husband, Fa1stalf's hurried departure in a basket covered over with wash, and his later immersion in the Thames. The servants are met at the door by Mr. Ford, and Mistress Page remarks afterward, very gleefully, "What a taking he was in when your husband asked what was in the basket." Falstaff, in relating his grievances says, "But mark the sequel: I suffered the pangs of three several deaths, first, an intolerable fright, next, to be com- passed hilt to point, heel to head, and then, to be thrown into the Thames, and cooled, glowing hot, in that surge like a horseshoe." Mistress Page and her friend essay several other tricks and are very successful. At length they feel that Falstad' has been sufficiently punished and the play is closed with the picture of the families of Mistress Page and Mistress Ford, with Sir John, enjoying a splendid dinner arranged for the occasion. Mr. Hazlitt says of "Twelfth Night," "lt makes us laugh at the follies of mankind, not despise then, and still less beat any ill-will towards them." Viola, the heroine, has been made famous by Viola Allen's impersonation of her. She is mischievous, artful, merry and sad, a whole collection of moods and fancies. Upon the command of the Duke, whom she loves, disguised as a page, she goes to try to win the Lady Olivia's love for the Duke. She tells Olivia that the Duke loves her, " With adorations, with fertile tears, With groans that thunder love, with sighs of Ere." But Olivia remains unmoved and instead falls in love' with Viola, herself, who bears the name, Caesario. However, the complications are cleared away and Viola, although 'fShe never told her love," obtains the love of the Duke. ' Ruskin, in his "Sesame and Liliesj' says, "ln 'The Winter's Tale' and in 'Cymbelinej the happiness and existence of two princely households, lost through long years and imperilled to the death by the folly and obstinacy of the husbands, are redeemed at the last by the queenly patience and wisdom of the wives." ln "The Winter's Tale," Hermione, the queen, and Perdita, a pretty rliepherdess, her daughter, share the interest. Leontes imprisons his wife, Hermione, because he thinks that she is unfaithful to him. He sends his drztfjliter with a faithful servant, commanding him to drown her. ii After F115 sixteen years, Perdita, the daughter is found living with an old shepherd who has taken care of her. Hermione, whom her husband believed dead, is restored to him and every one lives happily ever after. Hermione charms us by her queenly dignity, her reserve and her sweet- ness. Paulina, her faithful attendant, tells Leontes who is bewailing his treatment of his wife, " lf one by one you wedded- all the world, Or from the all that are took something good To make a perfect woman, she you kill'd Would be unparallel'd." Mrs. Jameson, in her "Characteristics of the Women of Shakespeare," says of Perdita, "Perdita's distinct individuality is the beautiful combination of the pastoral with the elegant-of simplicity with elevation-of spirit with sweetness. " In "Cymheline," Imogen, the heroine, is the daughter of the King of Britain and when the play opens has been separated from her husband, whom the King dislikes. Posthumus, the husband, in exile in Rome, vows his wife "is more fair, virtuous, wise, chaste, constant qualihed than any the rarest of our ladies in France." Imogen, disguised, goes to seek her husband. The way is beset with dangers and when she hears the approach of a stranger she says: " Best draw my sword, and if mine enemy But fear the sword like me, he'll scarcely look out." In spite of her womanly fear, she bravely meets her foes. At length, when the battle between the Romans and Britons is over and Cymbeline sees the prisoners, he Ends his daughter and her husband, and his own two sons who had been stolen in infancy, among them. Of course, there is great rejoicing and every one is happy. It seems a great pity that the Public, the hydra-headed monster whom the theatrical world must worship, does not "like" Shakespeare. Many of the "stars" long to display their ability in Shakespearean roles. Thus, we might have Ethel Barrymore as Rosalind, Maude Adams as Juliet, Grace George as Lady Macbeth, Annie Russell as Viola, and so on. But the Public shakes its head. "That isn't the kind of thing I pay two dollars to' see Maude Adams in," says the Public. And there you are. L For this reason, most of the "stars" who aspilre to Shakespearean roles, arrange to give only special performances of the plays. Miss Adams gave a wonderfully staged performance of "Twelfth Night" both at Harvard and at Yale. She also gave "As You Like It" at the University of California. Mr. Sothern and Julia Marlowe have been playing Shakespearean roles for many years, but at a loss financially. Miss Ellen Terry and Henry Irving also had wide Shakespearean repertoires. Miss Terry is perhaps the greatest of all in her realistic portrayals of Shakespeare's heroines. These heroines of Shakespeare! How human they seem! Glad and sad, mischievous and sober, artful and simple, we love them all, and they are some of the best companions we can rind, no matter how long or how far we search. . 119' The Girl of Today and Her' Educational Needs r FACULTY ESSAY CATHARINE N. Cl-IUBB The girl of to-day! What is she? Can we trust the attractive covers and illustrations of our best magazines, and the word pictures of Kate Douglas Wiggin and other faithful portrayers of girl life? One fact concerning her is certainly true. She is seldom languid or delicate-looking, she often carries a tennis racket or skims over the ice in a becoming sweater, or, dressed in a spotless white costume or a huge chemistry apron, she adorns the pages of a vocational school catalogue. She is indeed a great contrast to the girl of her great-grandmother's day. She wishes to look healthy, believes in all forms of out-door exercise, does not hesitate in the least, for fear of being thought unladylike, to indulge a good appetite, and wonders why girls in the old stories faint so often and are such vapid, clinging creatures. Perhaps she reads Cooper's novels and agrees with Lowell's criticism of his women, "All the women he draws from one model don't vary, All sappy as maples and flat as a prairie." Yet she undoubtedly finds it hard to reconcile those tales and pictures of her grandmother's girlhood with the energetic, alert old lady whom she remem- bers. There is another great difference between the girls of the two periods. Our grandmothers oftimes were trained little in books, but were given a thorough course in household duties. They had few outside interests. Some- times, girls went out into the world to earn their own living, school teachers have frequently been pioneers. A hundred years have wrought a great change. There is no question now concerning the necessity of a gir1's education, the great point for con- sideration is, What sort of education does she need? Shall the women be educated exactly like men. The answer is usually "No." Their lives are different, and their education should be dillerent, but woman's training should be as good as man's in every respect. Her brain is no less brilliant, though perhaps long centuries of self-repression have not tended to develop her originality. The trend of education to-day is toward the practicalg conse- quently, we find manual training, basketry, modelling, sewing, millinery, domestic science, and commercial branches in the public schools. Yet much as We value all this and realize that the ,great majority of girls now go from the school-room into a wage-earning occupation, we must guard against turning women into mere machines for making a living. However ellicient a girl may be in practical work, she is not wholly ellicient unless she has the broader mind and sympathy that comes from knowledge of the world's best literature, from knowledge of the history of mankind, from knowledge of the 120 men and women about her. Some one has asserted that we can never understand the present thoroughly unless we know the past. This girl of to-day, too, is not wholly efficient unless she is taught how to spend her hours of relaxation and freedom from business cares. She can well afford a hobby of some sort. It may be poetry or birds or 'cook books or social centers. A girl is not a poorer stenographer because she has studied botany and chemistry, she will not be a poorer teacher of mathe- matics because she has been taught how to prepare a meal. She will not be a less capable nurse because she has learned to like Shakespeare and Tennyson. There is a tendency in some quarters to-day to sneer at the so-called cultural subjects in schools. There should be no quarrel between the two, the practical helps in earning a living, the cultural helps in the greater task of making a life. For the girl who does not intend to go out into the world but instead wishes to turn her attention to household duties, the school offers the practical training in domestic science. Mrs. Ellen I-I. Richards, who did so much to advance this art, is a splendid example of woman that has accom- plished a great deal for humanity. She realized that the average modern housewife was wasting her time, money, and energy in household manage- ment, and took upon herself the task of helping woman to a better knowledge of home duties and home-making. She paved the way for the teaching of all branches of household economics, wrote books on the subject, and labored to make of housekeeping both an exact science and a Hue art. One of the best results of this modern movement which gives girls an incredibly varied choice of occupations, is that marriage and school-teaching are not the only callings left to a woman. For a number of years most of our schools seemed to be based on the idea that education was mental only. Now we place physical education a close second to mental realizing that sound mental and moral health usually depend on sound physical health. Physical training is now a necessary part of a school curriculum. Besides mental and physical training, school shopld -tit a girl for com- munity life and citizenship. A large sc-hool is a miniature republic and offers endless opportunities for lessons of obedience, fairness, justice, con- sideration for others. To-day there is a call for women to help in the work of civic betterment, a call to which they are responding. Women are interested in the planning -of their homes, why not in the planning of their city? In many states they have taken up the problem of forest conservation. In our own Commonwealth, Pennsylvania, the movement was originated and largely carried on by women. The girl of to-day has the opportunity of entering almost every field of lucrative work and of engaging in almost every great public movement. Efficiency is the watchword to-day, and a girl should avail herself of every opportunity for improving herself. Even if it requires a great deal of SEtCI'lflCC, it is worth while, for the place at the top is for the well-trained competent worker. Not only is the education of the school or college years necessary, but also that later training that is acquired by a study of human nature and by experience. The best education a girl can receive is one which teaches her so to direct her efforts that she may become profitable to herself and useful to others. H 121 Carpe Diem CLASS ESSAY CATHARINE L. NAU N an ancient town of Greece there was, once upon a time, a statue. The statue has long disappeared but the following epigram tells us what it signified: " What is thy name, oh, statue P" "1 am called Opportunity." " Who made thee ?" " Lysippusf' " Why art thou on thy toes ?" . " To show that I stay but a moment." " But why is thy hair so long on thy forehead ?" 'K That men may seize me when they meet me."- " Why, then, is thy head so bald behind ?" " To show that when l have once passed I cannot be caught." The statue is gone, the epigram may vanish, but Opportunity will ever be in existence. lt is just as great and as fleeting today as it was yesterday. "lt walks c-ities and helds, it penetrates deserts and seas remote, it passes by hovel and palace. Once does it knock unbidden at every gate. That is the hour of fate, and those who follow reach every state mortals desire and conquer every foe save death. Those who doubt or hesitate, condemned to failure, penury and woe, seek it in vain and uselessly imploreg it answers not and it returns-no more." Everything that makes for a happy, successful career depends upon the seizure of tone single opportunity. " 'Tis never offered twice, seize then the hour, When fortune smiles and duty points the way, Nor shrink aside to 'scape the spectre fear, Nor pause, tho' pleasure beckon from her bower, But bravely bear thee onward to the goal." For women, opportunities today are innumerable. They are lying in wait for thousands of ambitious girls who come with pen and brush, with spade and spoon, with medical implements and law precedents. Girls skilled in sketching and painting are offered positions as architects, adver- tisers and designers. Agriculture and horticulture are open to girls. The field of Domestic Science is perhaps the largest open to women. For "we may live without friends, we may live without books, but civilized man cannot live without cooks." Today, many women, by virtue of their ready sympathy and clear-sightedness, have won positions in the medical sphere. Numerous others, clear-minded, keen-witted, have studied law. Others are serving humanity by doing reform work in prisons and in the slums of large cities, by working in the world-wide movement for "Better Babiestt and by working out questions concerning child labor. Many a woman freely gives 122V her time for playground work, for the popular Vacation Bible School and for extensive civic work. Each girl has an especial liking for one certain occupation and if the opportunity for entering that occupation presents itself, she should seize it immediately. Every woman has her place in this work-a-day world and it is her duty to iind her allotted place as soon as possible. Shakespeare says: ' " There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune, Omitted, all the voyage of their life , ls bound in shallows and in miseriesf' , Most of us are endowed with the use of our Hve senses and all other physical powers, but think of the many deaf, blind, and crippled persons in the world. Think how they strive for existence, hugging each phantom of hope for their betterment, seizing eagerly every opportunity oitered, and turning it into something of value. How much more can we, blessed with sight, hearing and speech, take the chances for our improvement and help- fulness to others and use them toadvantage! At the Overbrook School for the Blind, at Philadelphia, there is a little city of boys and girls. They are striving to make the best of their talents, although hindered by loss of sight. Besides regular school work, the boys are taught various manual occupations, chair-caning, carpet-weaving and basket-making. The girls learn, in addi- tion to their studies, music, sewing, knitting and housework. Since these blind boys and girls make good, why is it that so many, many boys and girls, each with two perfectly healthy eyes, fail? Sometimes it happens that a young man or young woman does not recognize his or her talent or the golden opportunity. 'ln days of old, when knights were bold," the flower of a certain far-a-way country went to war. The battle was long and bloody, and the banner of the brave prince was trodden in the dust. A coward stood on the edge of the host and said, 'tlf only l had a fine, sharp sword like the one the king's son bears. This blunt thing of mine is of no use whatever." With that he snapped the blade in two and threw it on the ground. The next moment the proud prince, wounded, almost defeated, weaponless, came by. 1-le spied the broken blade, seized it and heroically won the day. So it is with opportunity. lt is poor policy to envy the opportunities of another, for often those which we ourselves possess, if we only know how to use them rightly, are of just as great value. Some persons blame everything on luck. They seem to think that the excuse for their mistakes and failures. "Bad-Luck" Kearney in A. Henry's "Phoebe" thought that he was born under an unlucky star. To quote accurately, "Everything he got into went up into the air except a balloon. Every boat he sailed on sank, except the submarine. Everything he was ever interested in went to pieces, except a patent bomb-shell he invented." Such was the state of affairs, but Kearney was perfectly undaunted and cheerful. "lt was just my luck to have been born under that ill-omened lady Star, 1-.J 23 Phoebe," he would say. By a slip of the hand he missed a rope and as a result, a heavy gun fell into the twenty-five feet of water and mud. By a wellimeant but too severe kick, he killed a pack mule and burst a bag con- taining one hundred pounds of precious coffee berries. Luck and Phoebe again!! But one night a star burst and fell to earth and Kearney discovered that Phoebe had disappeared-and of course his bad luck had gone too. Life began anew for Kearney, for now he could go about his work without interference from a star. Although Kearney never found it out, his captain was told by a wise astrologer that Phoebe was still in existence and the star which Kearney had cursed for his bad luck, was probably not Phoebe at all but at different changes of the orbit, it was a different star and that the real Phoebe was scarcely visible, through a telescope. After all, luck doesn't matter so 1nuch! Kearney was one of those happy-go-lucky optimistic individuals who sees the world through rose-colored glasses. He seized every opportunity that came his way, although he often failed to use it well. Such a man, however, is far better than the pessimist, who grumbles in a corner, "If only my lot had been a little better one, I might have been a happy man." This army of the "If-Onlies" and the "Niight-Have-Beens" is an enormous oneg but no good can come from joining its ranks. It is for every one to be content with his lot and to use the opportunities which are his. This connnencement is the end of school days for some of us, for othersgjust the beginning of a higher school life where the particular talent of each girl can be developed. For all, this day opens the door to the wide world beyond, the world full of excellent chances and opportunities. We are the future citizens and home makers of America. We must increase our little store of knowledge, broaden our minds, deepen our characters. The way to those three accomplishments is through the open door of oppor- tunity. Across the threshold we see responsibility. It is our bounden duty to take opportunity and responsibility by the hand. Then only have we done our work. Then only do we receive our reward. .124 The Semi-Chorus W Q Was der Wald erzihlt i TX . .- , E, ,A f Z' l ' - fr f E , 4 1 L .' . 1- x V - T 7 lb .. -' ' x " V ' 'lj' ' X :S X , 14 Fliffyg, ' If i Q,, -.'- 4 i V fi -fi -W 'Ne - 1 l 1 f K .

Kramlich With a sigh, Rob Kinster threw down his weatherworn cap, and sank into the big, old armchair. He was dog-tired. Spring was upon them, and the old sor- rel was lame, and altogether he had had a very hard day. He was too tired even to go to the pump, and, hot and dirty as he was, waited for the evening meal. His sister, Eva, was silently setting the food upon the table, and from the kitchen came savory odors of "ponhaus" and fried potatoes. The shriek of the train whistle sounded far away and, presently, in walked the eld- est son of the family. Frank was the op- posite of his brother in so many respects that people often remarked about it. Rob had heard them say, "Isu't the oldest Kinster fine looking?" Although at first it hurt, he became quite used to it. Frank was somewhat smaller than his farmer brother, and his features were more finely marked. His shining spectacles gave him a rather professional air. Although his hands were as knotted as his brother's, they were far cleaner. As he stood in the doorway his suit, although obviously worn and sadly in need of pressing, seemed the acme of style to poor Bob in his dirty overalls. "Well, I see you're home, once," said the mother as she came. in from the kit- chen. ".Tohn,"i to the small boy sitting at Rob's feet, "call yer Popg ye kin set up. The remaining member ofthe family ap- peared and, amid a. great noise of moving chairs, the Supper began. "Well, Frank, how did school go today?" asked the father of his son who daily traveled the sixty miles to Reading to business college. "Any sign of a job?" "No," said Frank, "Business is pretty 'bu1n.' The boss he said maybe next week." "See, I told you, Pop, it wasn't no use to spend so much to get Frank educated," said the mother. "He ought to stay at home and help some." Rob, who had hitherto kept silent, broke in with "Well, there ain't so 11111911 he kin do, I kin do what there ig," :J "HoImes' Coal Makes Happy Homes" HTRY IT- . . Holmes 85 Co. N. W. Snr.

"The man who permits his pleasure to interfere with his business, may reach the point where he Wou't have any of either," Frank breathed a sigh of relief, within himself. He hated farm work and was all for "getting educated." As they arose from the table, Frank said to his brother. "Goin' to use the mules?" Now Rob had intended going to see a certain young lady at Welstburg, but he was so tired and it was so much trouble --"well,"-he said, "You kin have 'ein." Frank rode gaily away and did not re- tu1'n until the shockingly late hour of ten, as time goes at Centerville. Next morning, when Frank set off for Reading, and Rob was working in the fields, he could notuhelp drawing a coni- parison between hirnsell? and the trim llgure walking hurriedly along the road. Not that 'Rob cared to be educated. Not he. The painful days when he had strug- gled along in arithmetic and the day when "teaclier" asked him to spell "agri- eulturist" without a "li" were too lirnily impressed upon his mind. But he did hate to be always left behind, always taken for granted. Most olf all, he hated the uul'avorahle remarks that he knew people made about hilll. Fate seemed against him. The colt fell and strained her leg, and one of the cows broke through the fence around the big field. It was certainly a. trying day, but, when Frank came home, he found his brother dressed in hits best and shiningly clean. 'iGoiu' off?" queried the future business man. "Yep," answered the farmer lad. After supper, the niules and the buggy made a trip to Westburg and paused not until they stood before the door of a cer- tain white farmhouse near the end of the village street. Rob was cordially re- ceived and sat for one long hour, on the edge of his chair, 'ispeakin' with the folks." At last, the latter retired, and Rob was alone with the very charming Sally Winters. After an extremely long and embarrassing pause, Rob said, "Pop says I kin hev the farm an' he an' Mo1n'1l go to the other house down the road if you'll hev me, Sally?"

Without a word, Rob stalked out into the night. Oh, why hadn't he gone yesl terday! He might have-but no. Girls liked cititied chaps better anyway, Somehow he got home, and another long day passed. Frank came home with his lace beaming, "I have a job," he cried. "Six per." ln the confusion, no one noticed Rob's silence nor the look on his strained, white face. why he didn't marry, and "Mom" began to wish for a daughter to help in the house. As the years passed, Rob grew more silent and "groucl1y," as the neighbors said. First, Eva must have her dowry, and Rob worked for that. Then, the mortgage on the farm must be paid, and then, little John must have his education. He wanted to go to college, and Rob resolved that to college he should go. Eva married a rich, young farmer, and went to live in a rather distant town. At Christmas, the son and daughter brought their families and had a merry time in the old home. Always Frank looked more prosperous and Sally In a year came a big raise and Frank YOUIISGI' Hlld 111010 1'iCh1Y S'0WI19d- R015 and Sally were married and went to the city to live. By and by, "Mom" came to speak of "my boy in Reading" with a very evident pride, which increased as the years passed. Always, Rob worked on in the fields, plowing, planting, and harvesting as the seasons passed, and always folks wondered felt that, after all, she had chosen the bet- ter man. And yet-what might he not have been with her for an inspiration? Then, within the same year, the old people left him alone and, again, he paid all the debts and kept "the boy," as he fondly called him, at college.

Then he had grad- uated and was coming home to help his brother. Rob was heartily glad. Per- haps hc could make the landlfruitful again. But, suddenly, his sky was overshad- owed with clouds. Another niissive, fol- lowing closely on the heels of the first letter, contained the startling news that John had married "the dearest girl in the world," and that they would arrive in two weeks to stay with him always. Rob groaned as he thought of the old farm house that had not been white- washed well for years and then of its shining brick neighbors. The old kitchen had never looked so flirty nor the "hired help" so slatternly. I-le would write and send the tive thousand dollars, which he had entrusted to the bank for use in his old age, and tell John to buy a home some- where else. His bride must have a fine home. And so, with a dry sob, the had so longed to have John with himj he began to write. He had scarcely written laboriously, "My dear John," when there was a sound of confusion in the front yard and there before the old ,farmhouse was John, help- ing the most beautiful girl Rob had ever seen, to alight from a. shining new car- riage- with two sleek horses. When John saw him, he cried, "We just couldn't waitf' And when John led the "most beautiful girl" to him and Rob looked into her happy blue eyes, he some- how felt that everything was all right. They sat down on the old steps and planned it all: the new barn, the grav- elled driveway, the new pear and peach trees and so on. And Rob suddenly felt young again and began to look forward to the coming day as something really worth while. Mgdhhize nnndys' cunning 4' A More Complete Department Can- not be found in Reading.

With Bath, 552.00 up Armetia and 'Guendo RTMETIA, a beautiful nymph of the flowers and trees, was the daughter of the monarch of the ocean, and a water nymph. At her birth the gods, goddesses and nymphs, flocked around her. Each brought her a useful gift. But the one she appreciated the most, was the gift she received from her father. With the use of this she was able to transform herself into anything she might desire. However as she was now grown up, she delighted in visiting her father in the deep, blue sea. The rest of the time she spent with her mother in the forest of Acren. One lovely morning, when the birds were singing in the trees, and the flowers glistening with dew, scattered their perfume in the morning breeze, Artmetia set out on a walk. She usually went with her friends, the other nymphs. But, as they did not come very early, she could not resist going out to enjoy the pure summer air. Here and there she stooped to gather some flowers to weave into a garland for her hair, now and then she stopped to listen to the chirping birds. Finally she found a small pool of water, sat on the bank, and commenced her garland. , Now the hair of Artmetia was far more beautiful than that of other maidens. lt had a luster of gold. Her hair was the pride of her heart, and every day she made a new garland for it. I Now the young prince Guendo of the neighboring country, unable to stay in-doors, happened to be hunting with his faithful hounds. Suddenly he was attracted by a dazzling glare as of gold.. lt was the hair of Artmetia, on which the sun had set its rays. As he approached nearer, he was struck by her beauty. He immediately started toward her. As Artmetia chanced to see him, she took to flight. She spedover the soft turf hastily and so lightly that the blades and the slender flowers scarcely moved when they felt her soft tread upon them. Guendo and his dogs followed. Artmetia, knowing that her pursuer wouldrnot lose tracl: of her as long as he saw her hair, and not knowing that he had the hounds with him, changed herself into a hare. The dogs, taking up the trail, followed her with renewed energy.

AND SAVE MONEY thither, till Hnally she was caught in clutches of the merciless beasts. In her fright she called upon her mother and father to save her. Alas! it was too late. She was held in a deathlike grip. In her last breath, she begged her par- ents that her friends, the other nymphs, might never, never, forget her. Ac- cording to her wish, her large blue eyes were changed into tiny blue petals, and her slender body into a stem. She 'became a for-get-me-not. Bitterly lamenting her untimely end, Guendo ran up. Bending over the small flower, he tenderly kissed its petals, and wept bitterly. But Fate was kind to him. His form stiilened and took the shape of a weeping willow, shading the tiny flower with its branches, as if to protect it. Julia E.

Now Reginald was a real, live, wide- awake boy, in spite of his romantic name, and all of the time he sat quietly in the chair his thoughts reverted to his differ- ent amusements, especially base-hall, which was his favorite. Although this angel of purity was only ten years old, yet he was considered the best pitcher on the nine. He was just thinking whether he should tell his mother about that zero he got in geography that day when he was caught throwing spit-balls across the room. Although l1e was merely trying to hit imaginary soldiers, yet in reality they were Maude King's yellow curls, and his deed created quite a scene. All at once he heard the high pitched voice of Miss Brooks, which harshly broke in on his meditations. She was telling his mother how nicely her sister's little boy behaved at school, at which his mother answered that as often as she peeperl through the school-room door, v.hi1e her son was at class, not once had she seen him idle or not tending his ozvn business. When Reginald heard this astounding statement, he then decided that his mother should never learn oi' his zero, at least 11ot by his tongue. He even decided that he was always going to he a credit to his father and mother, to study arith- metic, to take walks with l1is mother, practice those dreadful piano lessons, go visiting, and even condescend to give up base-ball and his mock-battles.

It took him about three minutes to re- cover from his embarassmentg then three long, shrill whistles sounded over the fence. He knew it was the 'crowd' and that they had a game on at four o'clock to play against the "Green Dragons," a game for which they had been waiting a long time. He simply had to get out and pitch for this game. He knew that he could not expect any meicy from his mother or the ladies, and any way he wouldn't have had much time to ask, for it was now only five minutes to the allotted time. The window toward him, leading out on the porch, was open, but dare he risk it? The ladies' backs were turned toward him, and they were busily scanning the leaves of some stupid old fashion plate. He hesitated one second to consider duty and pleasure, after which "duty whispers low, thou must" and he musthdeny himself the extreme pleasure ot helping to entertain, and out he went to heip win that game.

Henry Schofer Sons Bakers and Caterers 227-241 NORTH EIGHTH STREET 15 The Mysterious Animal A I J Q2 1 Myra Detample It was a cold, bleak night in De- cember. The sky was darkened very early by heavy, gray snow clouds, and the ground was covered with snow, for it had been snowing for almost two hours. The farmers and villagers were flocking into the village grocery store in preparation for a week of snow and bad weather. About half-past six o'clock Tom Fox, a superstitious old farm hand, dashed into the store, all pale and breathless from running. Everybody circled about Tom questioning, t'What's happened? Was fehlt, Tom? 77 Tom said that when he came down through Buzzard I-Iollow, just as he neared the ruins of the old forge, he heard a strange noise some distance behind him. When he looked around, he saw a black animal al- most on his heels. It was no dog nor was it a sheep. Fox was defenceless, and if the animal meant any harm, he could do nothing but yell. I-le did yell too, and the animal dashed into the pit in the old forge at the 'Hrst scream. Now Tom ran as fast as possible, only to be again accom- panied by the supposed evil friend. This time when he was about to chase it, it suddenly vanished. Jerry Boone, one of the listeners, confirm- ed Tom's statement by saying that the same thing had happened to him a few nights before, and that the ani- mal kept howling on his heels. A few evenings after this, when a number of men were returning home from work by way of the railroad, they were suddenly territied by hor- rible cries or shrieks of some animal or person which seemed to rise from the ground beside them. They glanced about them, but saw nothing. Then they ran. The thing followed them for some distance, but soon seemed to retreat. VVI-io TEAC:-:Es DANCING?

Some be- gan to think that the mysterious ani- mal was the spirit of a wicked old hunter who had been killed on the railroad, and was now roaming about his haunts. That night and for many nights, the shutters of every home were closed at dusk. Few persons dared to leave their homes. In the course of a few weeks ter- rible things happened. One night when some young folks, pretending to be brave and not afraid of any wild animal, were coasting on the hill in the west end of the town, they were horrified by the same weird sounds. Qne boy, in trying to makti Z0 his escape, fell over a barbwire fence and broke his arm. Chickens began to disappear, and even the cats were supposed to have gotten away. For hours at night the monster prowled over the hills. Gne morning a neighbor tracked it in the light snow that had fallen in the night, and claimed that from all appearances it must have terrible claws. This added a new horror to the mysterious wild animalj As matters grew worse and worse, those people who were not too super- stitious and cowardly planned to hunt down the cause of all this disturb- ance.. The very next night the ter- ror of the town would be heard, all were to take up their weapons and lanterns, and hunt it down. It was not long, either, until they had occa- sion to do so. One evening, after dusk, as the mail carrier came up Diehl's lane, he could just discern a black tigure, like diat of a huge animal, cross the or- chard, and go around the woodpile. The carrier dashed into the Diehl farm house blurting out in almost one breath, "Jerry, the guns and lan- terns! We got him! We got him!" I-Ie barely had this out when a terrible cry set up in the orchard. The chickens, in the pen, began to cackle and flutter like wild birds in great danger. Jeremiah had his gun and lantern ready in the twinkling of an eye, and both were out of the house and on their way to the wood pile. However, as soon as the door opened the noise ceased. The men hurried on anyway, and in a few seconds were reinforced by the Deeds farm hands and a few others. Four of the men began digging on the sides of the wood pile, while the others began hunting out every other nook and corner. Suddenly, through the dim light of the lantern, one of the men espied two shining spots which seemed to be looking out at him from among the wood. He cried, "We got him! we got him!" ggtKi1ne, Epplhlmer 81. Co. tt I White Silk, White Washable Chamoisette ' and White Kid' Gloves in All Lengths, ' Dainty Lace Neckwear.

There it was up on the apple tree. Jerry raised his gun to take aim when the much feared and supposed wild ani- mal pleaded quickly. "Don't, for goodess sake, don't, Jerry," and straightened out to the form of a man. It was young Jim Haws, a hare- brained and daring youth, who had been playing the wild animal the whole winter. He chose this time of evening and place for the disclosure, because he knew the carrier was sure to see him, and his plans would work out best here. The night Fox had told his tale at the grocer's Jim and Lime Dillon, his best friend and a man much re- spected, were in the store. Dillon, who was juslbubbling over with jokes and pranks, thought it would be fun to play the part of a wild animal, and Haws agreed. So the next day he got some swordgrass and a curved piece of bark, and made a whistle. The sounds produced were blood curdling, and appealed to Jim im- mensely. The night of the disclosure, Jim had the laugh on the town. He had eaten the chickens, and had once been identiried as the ghost of the old Fllltl lll8-Sltlllllllllg Ull Sltllllllltlly WHILE YOU WAIT We do all our own Die-Stamping on sta- tionery, in inilials or any combination mono- gram, oz' from your own steel die, in any color.

The whole town hated him because they were ashamed of their own superstitious and exaggerations. The original wild animal that Fox had seen was nothing morethan Ben- son's harmless goat. It was accus- tomed to sleeping in the old forge pit, and had probably followed the old man. The noises were nothing more than the pines moaning and screech- ing when the wind stirred their snow laden limbs.

They were the last of their proud old race, but as beautiful as ever any of their ancestors had been in their youth. The last bud had just opened, and all its brother and sister roses were admiring its freshness and beauty. "Oh," exclaimed the eldest sister rose, "you are by far more beautiful than any of the rest of us. If you could only remain that way forever. How velvety your gown and what a rich deep crimson shade." "Thank you," said the little rose, blushing, "I am very glad I am beautiful but don't you think this is a narrow world? Ever since l have begun to unfold l have looked up and wished l could grow higher and reach to the very top of this garden. Then l would go out into the world and try to make some one happy." I Just then the sound of voices was heard mingled with soft, silvery laughter. "That must be our little gardener," said one of the flowers. And it was.. Such a very sweet littleugardener as she was too. Her golden hair was in rrnglets, and her cheeks were like the roses themselves.

F. fMQEY ER Jeweler Sixtlg and Bingamazz Slreefs DIAMONDS, WATCHES AND GLUGKS Fine Jewelry and Gut Glass ' t'Which ones shall I take?" she said, "I hardly dare choose, you are all so very beautiful. Oh, there is a new little one. I must have that," and she plucked the new baby rose, together with a lot of other ones. The little rose laughed for joy, but the other roses did not wish to be taken from their home, for they knew they would soon wither and die. When her bouquet was complete, the little one danced gaily thru the garden and up the broad veranda steps. There she was met by a sweet-faced woman who took the roses and packed them in a box. There the roses were nearly smothered, but they endured it as best they could. Then they were taken in some one's arms and carried for quite awhile. The next thing they knew it was daylight again, and the lid was removed. They all drew a deep breath and looked around at their new home. They were again lifted and placed in a vase of water. How delightful that was! They drank deep and brightened up considerably. The little rose was the most beautiful of all, and it was at its best. The room in which they found themselves was poor and dingy. lt was not like their former surroundings. The other roses grumbled and wished themselves back in the sunshine garden, but the little rose was silent and waited patiently. Soon it saw, as it gazed curiously about, a sight which filled its little heart with pity. On a bed by the window was a little invalid, very unlike the happy, healthy child who had plucked the roses. This one was pale and thin, and had a sad, painful expression on her wan face. But when she caught sight of the beautiful fresh roses, a heavenly smile lighted up her face and she reached out her hands for them. When she had taken the vase, she buried her face in their sweet-smelling depths, and caressed them. All at once, she spied the little rose almost covered by the larger ones and at her request it was removed from the rest and placed in a glass of water by the window. Thru all her long weary days, this rose was her one comfort and it lasted for quite a while. lt tried its best to look bright and gay, but it realized it could not live forever, and like the little sufferer, it drooped and drooped and, Hnally, clasped in the hands of the dying child, it too, breathed its last, and it smiled happily to itself, for -it realized its life work was accomplished and although -small, it had been a pleasure and had helped to brighten the life of one little child. tThe Endj COOK WITH GAS!
